Central Coast Shakespeare Festival Presents Classical Laughs

Central Coast Shakespeare Festival will present its fifth season with two comedies, As You Like It and The Three Musketeers, performed under the stars July 12-Aug. 4 at Filipponi Ranch, 1850 Calle Joaquin Road, San Luis Obispo.

Pack a picnic meal, bring lawn chairs, warm clothes and blankets. Filipponi Ranch wines are available for purchase, so please, no outside alcohol.

New this year, there will be short pre-show music sets on Friday nights, and Beda’s Biergarten will be onsite selling hearty German fare on Friday and Sunday nights. Piemonte’s Deli will return Thursday and Saturday nights selling deli salads and deli combo boxes.

As You Like It: Shakespeare’s popular pastoral comedy has it all — love, lust, and cross-dressing tomfoolery.

The Three Musketeers: This adaptation, by Linda Alper, Douglas Langworthy and Penny Metropolus, of Alexander Dumas’ epic tale reflects a Shakespearean sensibility with its larger-than-life heroes and sense of humor. It promises swordplay, romance, and perhaps a food fight or two.

Tickets are $12-$20 with pay-what-you-can-Thursdays discounts for students, children ages 12 and under, and seniors.

For tickets and information, visit Box Office opens one hour before each performance.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
