Twelfth Night

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Colin Loeffler

A full-length Shakespeare comedy about destroying expectations and surviving shipwrecks, presented by a full cast in a beautiful outdoor amphitheater.

“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ’em.”

Twelfth Night is the Shakespeare comedy with a little (or a lot) of everything:

* Mistaken identity
* Unrequited love
* Siblings
* Stockings
* Swagger
* Shipwrecks

“If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction.”
