Twelfth Night (or What You Will)
April 19 - April 29, 2012
Shakespeare's Twelfth Night is a "whirligig of time," where love is a contagious madness that touches every character. Set in a major cosmopolitan city in the roaring 20s, this production will be a wild party incorporating song, dance and a live jazz quartet into the show. There is much ado about misplaced affections, mistaken identities and comic revenge as they pile up one on top of the other, spurred on by love's delirium. Eventually, all is resolved as old sorrow is healed and new love is discovered in this merry, mixed-up world. Directed by professor Peter Sampieri and choreographed by professor Meghan McLyman.
