The Young People’s Theater Arts Workshop was created in the mid-eighties to supplement the lack of arts education and cultural expression in New York State’s Delaware County. Over the years the program, run by a non-profit arts organization in East Meredith, New York, has blossomed into a multifaceted children’s theater haven, giving it’s alumni what many remember as some of the best experiences of their lives.This summer twenty-nine teenagers embark on a fully staged production of Shakespeare’s 'As You Like It', and it is not going to be easy. The lead actress can’t memorize her lines,a discontented newcomer wants to abandon the show, the lone rebel is plotting to derail the performance, and the inclement weather is threatening to end their outdoor production before it even begins.The spirit of the theater prevails despite the challenges they face, and the show does, indeed, go on. The result is a triumphant performance against all odds that proves the transformational nature of the theater and its unique ability to build confidence and bonds that last a lifetime.
