This delightful little show by the year-old Davis Shakespeare Ensemble refreshes the venerable Shakespeare comedy with youthful energy, crafty staging-in-the-round, and a cute bicycle motif. Nine energetic actors, balmy fresh air, and the botanical charms of the UC Davis Arboretum all reinforce this hand-crafted, imaginative small production. Th, F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 10/2. $5-$10.
