Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" by the South County Middle School Theatre Department
The South County Middle School Theatre Department is proud to present "Twelfth Night".
William Shakespeare’s comedy of mischief and mayhem written to celebrate the Feast of Fools, a combination of Halloween and Aprils’ Fools Days, begins with strong notes of sadness and tragedy and explores the power friendship and love have to overcome loss.
The play is set in a boarding school and follows Viola, who believes her twin brother Sebastian is dead so masquerades as a boy named Cesario and inadvertently falls in love with Orsino, the man she serves. Things go awry when Orsino’s beloved, Olivia falls in love with Cesario. The madness continues as pranks are played, teachers become the children, and the fool becomes the wiseman.
Lead roles are played by Hailey Norlin (Viola), Ben Jackson (Orsino), Monica Altman (Olivia), Joseph Bright (Toby Belch), and Franco Diaz (Malvolio).
