Production Description

Casting "Twelfth Night." Synopsis: When Viola and her twin brother are separated at sea and she finds herself shipwrecked in the mythical land of Illyria, she must don the persona of a young man to survive. This simple bit of deception produces mass confusion, multiple mistaken identities, countless betrayals, hilarious character assassinations, and a gender-bending love triangle that only that master manipulator of the English tongue, William Shakespeare, could have imagined. Intertwined with numerous comic subplots, this timeless comedy, featuring such beloved scoundrels as Sir Toby Belch and Andrew Aguecheek, will keep both the aficionado and the Shakespearian virgin laughing and wishing for love to conquer all.

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations
