MADISON - Monroe native Bridget Christine Kelly will be portraying Rosalind, the lead character in Madison Shakespeare Company's upcoming production of William Shakespeare's comedy "As You Like It."

The play will be running at 6:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and at 4 p.m. Sundays from June 2-11 at the Edgewood College Amphithe-ater, located behind The Stream arts building in Madison.

"As You Like It" is the company's first full-length comedy and features early Renaissance period costuming by Raven Albrecht of Ravenworks and original compositions by musician Tom Kastle.

The tale of denied inheritance, mistaken identity, delayed love and frustrated shepherds has been entertaining audiences for centuries. Rosalind's quick wit, personal agency and taste for adventure make her one of Shakespeare's most enduring and endearing heroines. The play is a tale of the many forms love can take and explores how people can find themselves by getting lost in the forest.

Tickets are available for a suggested contribution of $15 at the door. Advance seating can be booked at
