  • Enter through the gates on 9th Street near the corner of Arapahoe.
  • You’ll be rambling along with our outcasts through the thick of the forest of Arden, so dress for an outdoor evening and wear sensible shoes for your banishment.

About the show

Band of Toughs puts a fresh spin on Shakespeare’s As You Like It in the outdoor twilight of downtown Boulder. Similar to our “★★★★★” sold-out production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the audience will be a part of the action, as fixtures at court and rambling along with our outcasts through the thick of the forest of Arden.

We promise twinkling lights, s’mores, tasty beer and live music—plus intrigue and exile, idiotic infatuations, raucous rabble-rousers and lovers who aren’t boring.

See why Fringe reviewers exclaim: “A thoroughly UNFORGETTABLE, full-immersion experience!” “Most memorable Boulder International Fringe Festival show I’ve ever seen.”

Join us for Shakespeare’s classic summer comedy, set in the most brilliant of locations, with a group of no-holds-barred, Bard-wielding trouble makers!
