One of Shakespeare’s beloved comedies, TWELFTH NIGHT employs mistaken identity, misguided love, and mistreatment of a pompous servant. Meanwhile, Olivia’s kinsman, Sir Toby Belch, along with his friends, make fun of Olivia’s steward, Malvolio, by playing a sinister joke on him. Unbeknownst to Viola, her brother Sebastian has been rescued, and Olivia mistakes Sebastian for Cesario (Viola’s disguise!). By play’s end, Malvolio vows revenge on Sir Toby and his gang, while the mistaken identities are revealed, and 2 couples head towards marriage.

 

The curtain time for Thursday, Friday and Saturday night shows is 7:30 p.m. with the Sunday performance starting at 2 p.m.
