"If music be the food of love, play on."
Shakespeare in the Park is back with a fun-filled frolic like never before.
From the company that brought you A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Much Ado About Nothing and Macbeth, Twelfth Night is a rambunctious romantic comedy that will have you laughing and falling in love all over again.
Picnic under the stars and be romanced by this quirky and endearing comedy. Twelfth Night promises to be an unforgettable and magical evening for one and all.
Orsino, the Duke of Illyria pines for the lovely Countess Olivia who rejects his advances. In the meantime, the shipwrecked Viola, convinced that she has lost all kin, disguises herself as a boy and takes the name Cesario. Cesario soon finds herself in the Duke’s household as his page and helps him woo fair Olivia.
In a strange turn of events, Olivia finds herself falling for Cesario (who really is Viola in disguise) and Viola herself is falling for the Duke. With this love triangle complete, hilarious twists are bound to ensue.
