This outdoor production takes advantage of the UC Davis Arboretum's lush greenery and an energetic Appalachian-style band (mandolin, etc.) for a savvy rendering of Shakespeare's pastoral comedy of wooing in a rustic wooded setting. Watch for local pro Matthew Edwards as the “melancholy” lord Jacques. Th, F, Sa 8pm; Su 6:30pm. Through 6/30. $10-$15.
