OPENING THIS WEEK!
TWELFTH NIGHT; or, WHAT YOU WILLWilliam Shakespeare’s classic comedy that celebrates love in times of winter receives a full production under the direction of Fr. Shawn Clerkin. This light-hearted favorite brings to the stage some of Shakespeare’s most entertaining of characters, including the melancholic Duke Orsino, the standoffish Olivia, the caustic Malvolio, the playful Feste, the sot Sir Tobey Belch, and the gender-bending Viola…or is it Cesario?!? Entwining music, mirth, and social comment, audiences are sure to be warmed by TWELFTH NIGHT in spite of the December chill. Featuring:Cassie Bielecki, Michael Fujito, Michael Haas, Megan Hamm, Karalyn Headley, Zach Hyman, Eli Kerr, Chase Miles, Catie Strout, Jenna Sulecki, and Zak Westfall Megan Hamm as Viola/Cesario
