Next weekend, As You Like It opens at the Merely Players Underground in the Tech Center. Get your tickets now to see AHS Spanish and Journalism teacher Jessica McCallum moonlighting in the role of Audrey in this groovy version of Shakespeare's pastoral comedy. As is her way, Jessica wrote a sonnet when asked by her director,Mona Wood-Patterson, to describe her perfect day:
"There are countless paths to a groovy day;
I could have one in the rain or the shine.
I much like days full of laughter and play,
But the tear-filled ones, too, can be divine.
I bounce through most days in search of the mirth
To frolic and dance and love as I please,
But oft I’m content to stroll ‘cross the Earth
And contemplate life with my friends, the trees.
Any day holds the potential to thrive;
I stay thus grateful for the chance I get
To mark the times I feel extra alive
And inspir’d to write a sudden sonnet.
A day as you like it marry depends
On viewing it through the grooviest lens."
