Synopsis

As You Like It goes to high school as Shakespeare's classic collides with “catfishing” in this contemporary adaptation. When Rosalind meets Orlando, the newest addition to the Arden School wrestling team, she's too shy to share her feelings for him, so she uses social media to disguise herself as a boy and find out his true feelings for her. In the meantime, an administrative upheaval at the private school forces Rosalind and her cousin Celia to journey deep into the forest to find Rosalind’s father, the recently fired wrestling coach. With Rosalind's financial aid gone, can she find her father and a way to remain enrolled? Classic characters from the original play, such as Audrey, Touchstone, Phoebe and Silvius, join in the comedic adventure.
