Shakespeare on the Sound Postposed

"As You Like It" to premiere Friday evening

Norwalk, CT | Added on June 13, 2013 At 01:39 PM

The premiere of 2013's "Shakespeare on the Sound" production, "As You Like It," has been postponed.

The play will open Friday evening instead of Thursday due to inclement weather.  The production will begin at 7:30 p.m.

The comedy based in a French dutchy will run through June 30 and will be performed on a "grassy knoll that forms a natural amphitheater" at Rowayton's Pinkney Park, according to a press release.

"As You Like It" stars Greenwich native Chris Ghaffari as the "chivalrous, naive" Orlando, a character once brought to life by Sir Laurence Olivier in a 1936 film.  Ghaffari also played a minor role in Shakespeare on the Sound's 2008 presentation of "Julius Caesar."

"Orlando wants to define himself, break out as his own man," Ghaffari said in a press release.  "He is, for example, engrossed in love poetry.  The poetry is terrible.  But he throws himself into it with abandon."

Ghaffari stars opposite Katie Wieland as Rosalind, Orlando's love interest.

In Rowayton, the production is "family-focused in a venue that lends itself to picnic-style theater," the press release said.

There is no charge for admission.  A $20 is suggested, $10 for seniors and students.  Reserved seats are available for $50.

Additional information is available online at or by calling (203) 268-2961.
