Casady Theatre Presents: Shakespeare's Twelfth Night
"If Music Be the Food of Love, Play On!" So begins Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, a most mischievous and hilarious comedy that deals with our most base of human emotions: Love.
Viola is shipwrecked in the distant land of Illyria, where she dresses as a boy to work for Duke Orsino. Orsino sends Viola (now dressed in disguise) to deliver love letters to the Lady Olivia. Immediately, Olivia starts to fall in love with boy-Viola! Viola's separated twin brother Sebastian arrives in Illyria, and a comedy of errors ensues. In the meantime, party-people Sir Toby and Sir Andrew plot to humiliate the strict steward of the house, Malvolio.
Music, merriment, dancing, cross-dressing, and cross-gartering drive this brilliant comedy to a glorious finale that's fun for the whole family. The show contains some bawdy humor, fake cigar use, and references to drinking.
