The 3,000 free tickets for Georgia Shakespeare’s five performances of “As You Like It” June 4-8 in Piedmont Park went bye-bye within 24 hours, but there are plenty of affordable tickets ($10 each) still available.

Georgia Shakespeare’s Producing Artistic Director Richard Garner will direct the 7:30 p.m. performances, which will include some songs given live bluegrass reinterpretations.

The Shakespeare in the Park shows will be staged at a new picnic-friendly location (food and drink available on site; or you can haul in your own food) on the Upper Green, just south of the Legacy Fountain.

General admission lawn seating begins at 6 p.m. Reserved tables for six: $250. 404-504-1473, http://www.gashakespeare.org. HOWARD POUSNER
