TWELFTH NIGHT. Directed by Charlie Sexton

Shakespeare’s zaniest romantic comedy. Viola, after being shipwrecked, sets out disguised as a page and promptly falls in love with someone who loves someone else, who in turn falls in love with the page, who is actually Viola. The original romantic love triangle, Twelfth Nights vividly depicts what crazy things we will do in the name of love. 


CYMBELINE. Directed by Meg Caudill

Cymbeline is one of Shakespeare’s later plays that has something for everyone: a wicked Queen, secret marriages, betrayal and forgiveness, war between England and Rome, mistaken identities, and a woman who must disguise herself as a man while seeking her lost love. In the end, all’s well that ends well as truths are revealed, lovers are reunited, and villains are vanquished.
