Twelfth Night in the Barn
January 5, 2019
What Cheer, Shakespeare?Has been performing at venues for the last 15 years. The troop also produces several "off-season" productions, including their farcical adaptation of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, which has become a legend in Rhode Island.
The company is known for bringing Shakespeare to life for everyone, using modern costumes, simple scenery, topical references, but keeping The Bard's words intact! This is a great chance to see a classic comedy with the whole family!
Twelfth Night is an "audience favorite"
Duke Orsino of Illyria is in love with Olivia, but his advances are rejected.
A shipwrecked Viola arrives on his shores, and with the help of a Captain, disguises herself as a boy, calling herself Cesario, and enters Orsino's service.
Orsino takes to Cesario, and sends 'him' to woo Olivia for him. But when Orsino sends Cesario to deliver Orsino’s love messages to the disdainful Olivia, Olivia herself falls for the beautiful young Cesario, believing her to be a man. The love triangle is complete: Viola loves Orsino, Orsino loves Olivia, and Olivia loves Cesario—and everyone is miserable. The intrigue continues amid much confusion…..to a happy ending.
