A stormy night on Lake Michigan leaves twins Sebastian and Viola shipwrecked and each believing the other dead. Viola finds her way as a single woman in the small town of Illyria outside Chicago in 1920 by disguising herself as her brother and working for the prestigious Orsino. Shakespeare’s work lends itself to accommodate any time period as has been proven over and over again in theatrical presentations and film adaptations. The students in Dr. Elizabeth Brown’s Shakespeare in Performance class at the University of Rio Grande have enthusiastically worked toward recruiting fellow students, teachers, and community actors to explore the staging of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night in a jazzy What You Will underground club owned by the elegant Olivia. Come and be entertained by celebrated verse complemented by a little roar.

General Admission seating $5 at the Ariel Opera House Box Office the night of the show!
