Summer Youth Productions

Working with professional directors, designers, and artists, students apply classroom training to the stage, learn rehearsal process and etiquette, and the discipline of performance. A play is a big commitment. Students should attend every rehearsal (conflicts must be listed at time of audition), meet memorization deadlines, and come to rehearsal prepared for the day.

Twelfth Night, Or What You Will
Directed by Kevin Gates and Shannon Fox
By William Shakespeare

A story of mistaken identities and love at first sight, “Twelfth Night” is the original romantic comedy. During a violent storm, Twins, Viola and Sebastian, are separated in a strange new land. Having survived a shipwreck and believing her brother Sebastian has been lost, Viola falls hopelessly in love with Duke Orsino and disguises herself as a man to enter his services. From there mistaken identities and misplaced love abounds as told through poetic soliloquies and hilarious farce.
