About the production

All the world is a mall in this new musical, written by Dan Aquisto and Sammy Buck and based on William Shakespeare's "As You Like It."

It's 1985 and the brand new Arden Mall is hosting a high school dance. Bookworm Rosalind wants to go with varsity wrestler Orlando, but she's never had the guts to talk to him. She resorts to disguising herself as a guy named Corey to learn Orlando's true feelings for her. But, things get tricky when "Corey" complicates the lives of three other couples at Arden. Rosalind will do anything to get Orlando, even if it means showing up at the dance as both herself and Corey.

With the excitement of "High School Musical" and the heart of "Glee," "Like You Like It" is filled with memorable tunes, a hip sense of humor and huge heart. It all works out "Like You Like It" if you take the biggest risk of all--being yourself.
