SUMMER of SHAKESPEARE logo

Tennessee Shakespeare Company is proud to offer this weeklong in-depth exploration of one of Shakespeare's most rewarding plays. In a conservatory-style environment, you'll work with our professional actor/teachers to stage scenes, soliloquies, fights, songs, and dances from As You Like It, all culminating in a performance of our work in progress!
