Third Wall does Shakespeare as you like it

The Third Wall Theatre Company hopes to put on Shakespeare’s As You Like It as audiences will like it.

The show, which begins Feb. 4, will be a contemporary update of Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, with all the lines of dialogue intact, but with sets and music suited to a modern setting.

“It’s Shakespeare’s greatest play about love and marriage,” said director Charles McFarland. “It was an obvious pick, it’s a sunny, happy, Valentine’s Day kind of play.

“We’re not trying to be over intellectual,” said McFarland. “We want to get any snob factor out and just get people to come and have a good time.”

The play features a cameo performance from former Ottawa Rough Rider, WWE wrestler, and Team 1200 radio personality Glenn Kulka as Charles the Wrestler.
