Taste of Shakespeare –
As You Like It
It may be brother against brother, but love still blossoms in this Civil War adaptation of Shakespeare’s “As You Like It,” offered by “A Taste of Shakespeare”, and sponsored by the Longmont Theatre Company and the Theater Company of Lafayette. Performed this summer over four weekends in July and August, audiences will love this classic romantic comedy with a twist.
Taste of Shakespeare offers FREE performances during the summer, indoors and out, at locations up and down the Front Range. While the shows are free, we do accept donations at the end of each performance, and we appreciate your generosity to help us continue this work.
For outdoor performances, bring seating, water, sun screen, bug spray, and anything else you might need for a couple of hours outdoors. For indoor performances, we open the doors for general seating 30 minutes before curtain.
Here are the performance dates, times, and locations.

Disney’s Alice in Wonderland
Travel down the rabbit hole and join Alice in her adventures! This musical features updated songs from the Disney film and is a fast-paced take on the classic tale. Alice’s journey begins when she chases the White Rabbit and throughout her adventure she races the Dodo Bird, encounters Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, attends a zany tea party with the Mad Hatter, raps with a bubble-blowing caterpillar, and attempts to beat the Queen of Hearts at her own game!
Into the Woods, Jr.
Mind the wolf, heed the witch, and honor the giant in the sky while performing in one of Broadway’s most famous musicals about the power of wishes — and what could happen when your wishes come true. This magical, imaginative adventure is told through famous Grimm fairy tales, including characters like Cinderella, her Prince, Little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf, Jack, Rapunzel and many others.
