Event description
The capital’s much loved open-air free Shakespeare season returns in 2022 with the delightful comedy As You Like It directed by Tony Knight

About this event

Lakespeare brings our free summer season of Shakespeare to Yerrabi Pond District Park for the whole family to enjoy.

Shakespeare by the Lakes IV: As You Like It will delight audiences around the Capital Region this summer. Directed by Tony Knight, NIDA’s previous Head of Acting, this much-loved comedy features mistaken identities, bad poetry (from characters, not the author!), wandering jesters and enchanted forests.

Lakespeare is an independent theatre company on a mission to make high-quality theatre accessible to Canberrans and beyond. Visit our webpage closer to show time for more information about the show, the cast and what we do. And don't forget to follow us on Facebook or Instagram.

Our summer season always involves as many free outdoor shows as we can afford to put on. Crowd-sourced donations help make this possible. Follow this link if you'd like to help out by donating.

Cancellations policy: refunds (exclusive of booking fees) are only available for cancellations requested by ticket purchasers at least one week before the show. In the event that we have to cancel or postpone a show, refunds will apply (exclusive of booking fees).

ACT Public Health Guidelines in place at the time around the management of COVID-will apply, including sign in with the Check-in CBR app. More detail will be provided closer to the show.

What can I bring into the event?

Please bring sunscreen (daytime shows), a rug, friends, family, food and drink. A chair if you want to go in the chair zone. A blanket if it looks cold.

Show information

1. Access to the park from Gundaroo Drive via Wunderlich St is one way only. Please check the route ahead of arrival.

2. SBTL is an outdoor event and we all must adapt to the weather conditions. Unless there is torrential rain or strong winds that are a threat to people or equipment, the show goes on. We invite our audience to enter into the joy and fun of what nature might bring and be open to a variety of experiences. There is no such thing as bad weather, there is only the wrong clothes.

3. Chairs are only allowed in designated areas. So everyone can see, chairs will necessarily be set back from the main playing area.

4. So everyone can see, umbrellas are not to be used during the performance. Patrons should use hooded rain jackets or ponchos.

5. Lakespeare. reserves the right to add or remove performances, change venues and/or alter the start times of events. Of course, we only do this for good reasons and give you as much warning as possible.
