It’s the 1960s, and free spirits are escaping from Vancouver to get “back to the land”. This joyful tribute to love, laughter and music features 20 classic Beatles songs, from “I Want to Hold Your Hand” to “All You Need is Love”, performed by the cast. Come join in the fun! – you’ll leave the theatre with a song in your heart and a belief in our shared humanity.


“Shakespeare purists should probably avoid the production of As You Like It that premiered at the Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival on Friday. Everyone else: Get your tickets now, because just about everybody is going to want to see this, and a whole bunch of them are going to want to see it a second time. It is a joy.”  –The Globe and Mail

“Like it? I loved it… Go early—a pre-show wrestling event sets the mood. I had so much fun at As You Like It that I’ll go see it again—if there are any tickets to be had. This one’s a hit.”The Georgia Straight

“There are more than twenty Beatles songs, interjected at points so perfectly hilarious that on opening night the Mainstage roof must have been straining against its moorings with all that laughter rising up.”Jo Ledingham

“It could have been a stupid gimmick. Instead, it’s transcendent.”Colin Thomas
