Department of Theatre and Cinema presents Shakespeare's 'Twelfth Night'
October 31, 2011
The Department of Theatre and Cinema at Virginia Tech presents William Shakespeare’s colorful comedy Twelfth Night, directed by Gregory Justice. Performances are Nov. 3-5 and 8-12 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 5-6 and 12-13 at 2 p.m. All shows will be at Squires Studio Theatre on the campus of Virginia Tech.
The production promises to be an excitingly irreverent re-framing of Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identities and unrequited love. The creative team, which includes scenographer Randy Ward, lighting designer John Ambrosone, and costume designer Sammi Santini, has come up with a free wheeling, anachronistic approach to bringing these beloved characters to life on the stage.
Do you like Lady Gaga? Freddy Mercury? What about Liberace? All of these iconic performers have influenced this production in some way. Add some Cole Porter music, and this production promises to be a memorable one. Come ready to be shocked, amused, and entertained.
Tickets are $10 general admission, $8 for students and seniors, and are available at the Student Centers and Activities Ticket Office in the Squires Student Center. For tickets, call 540-231-5615, order online, or purchase tickets at the ticket office. Tickets will also be sold at the door beginning one hour prior to the performance.
