4th Wall Theatre Company presents As You Like It
4th Wall Theatre Company will present the Summer Shakes Showcase production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It, featuring Juilliard Drama School students Aaron Gonner and Arianna Stucki and students from Houston-area high schools. Summer Shakes is a new, rigorous Shakespearean actor training program hosted by 4th Wall Theatre. Philip Lehl, Co-Artistic Director of 4th Wall and alumnus of Juilliard, serves as the program director.
Summer Shakes is a learning and mentorship opportunity for Houston high school students. This theatre education program integrates the core participants of this program: local high school students, advanced conservatory students, a master teacher, and professional designers. The inaugural class of 12 high school participants was selected from an intense, city-wide audition call and represents seven schools across the greater Houston area.
