At Playa Sola High School, it’s business as usual – the jocks, geeks, popular kids, etc., all try to navigate a world of insecurities, grades, fashions and text messages. Then, during a school trip to a historic mission, the minds of two high school seniors are inexplicably switched. Suddenly Kyle, a charismatic slacker/surfer, is helping everyone with their calculus and scholastic superstar Natalie has become an expert on heavy metal lyrics and is calling everybody “dude.” In this screwball-comedy-for-a-new-generation, Kyle and Natalie have to find out how to get their brains back as they juggle friends, classes, rumors, scholarship competitions and, oh yeah, Kyle’s mean-girl, super-hot girlfriend Ashley.

FS_As You Like ItAS YOU LIKE IT Summer Tour
Presented by Free Shakespeare!
July 18-Aug. 11

Directed by Travis J. Cook

In AS YOU LIKE IT Duke Frederick (the younger duke) has usurped his older brother, Duke Senior, and banished him to the Forest of Arden. Frederick then banishes Duke Senior’s beautiful daughter Rosalind. Celia, Frederick’s daughter and best friend of Rosalind, flees her evil father with Rosalind and they travel (along with Touchstone, the clown) to the Forest of Arden. Before leaving, though, Rosalind falls in love with Orlando and he with her after he amazingly defeats Charles in a wrestling match. Orlando, the younger son of Sir Rowland, had rebelled at being kept a virtual prisoner by his cruel older brother, Oliver. Also banished, Orlando then roams the forest hanging poetry and carving Rosalind’s name in tree trunks. Meanwhile, Rosalind (who is disguised as a man named Ganymede) gives Orlando tips on how to capture the object of his affections. By the play’s end Ganymede, once again Rosalind, marries her Orlando. Two other sets of lovers are also wed, including Celia and Oliver. As Oliver becomes a gentler, kinder young man so the Duke conveniently changes his ways and turns to religion and so that the exiled Duke, father of Rosalind, can regain his crown.

CINCINNATI, June 12, 2013— Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, Cincinnati’s stage for the classics, is thrilled to present THE 39 STEPS adapted by Patrick Barlow, from the novel by John Buchan, from the movie of Alfred Hitchcock, playing July 19- August 11, 2013. This production is directed by CSC Producing Artistic Director, Brian Isaac Phillips and features CSC Resident Ensemble members, Billy Chace, Justin McCombs, Miranda McGee and Nicholas Rose. The design of this production is generously sponsored by Johnson Investment Counsel.

This runaway Broadway hit lands at CSC this summer. Alfred Hitchcock’s classic potboiler gets a tongue-in-cheek twist as four actors rocket their way through over 100 roles in a blood-tingling, and hilarious, tale of espionage and murder. Cincinnati audiences have raved about productions of “Every Christmas Story Ever Told” and “The Hound of the Baskervilles” that also feature small casts covering multiple characters in mystery-comedy adventures. They will not be disappointed by “The 39 Steps”. It’ll be an evening of comedy… to die for.

Director of “The 39 Steps”, Producing Artistic Director, Brian Isaac Phillips says “’The 39 Steps’ is an exceptional evening of theater. The play’s comic spin on the Hitchcock classic not only celebrates the cinema but showcases just how magical live theatre can be. This play deserves every accolade it has received at home and abroad and will be an evening to remember when it comes to life at our intimate home on Race Street.” Phillips continues, “I am also thrilled to be able to work with such an excellent cast. Our cast of four includes some of the funniest members of our ensemble.

Performances of “The 39 Steps” are scheduled from July 19- August 11, 2013 on Thursday, Friday & Saturday evenings at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm. Preview performances are on Tuesday July 17 and Wednesday July 18 at 7:30pm and tickets are $20. No performance on Sunday July 21. The theater is located at 719 Race Street, downtown Cincinnati, two blocks west of the Aronoff Center. Single ticket prices range from $22-$31 on Thursdays and Sundays and from $26-$35 on Fridays and Saturdays. If available, $14 student rush tickets may be purchased 30 minutes before a show with a valid student ID. Visa, Discover, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted. Ticketing fees may apply. Discounts are available for students, seniors and groups as well as Enjoy the Arts and AAA members.
