In Elizabethan times, Twelfth Night marked the end of Epiphany or the Christmas season with much merrymaking. According to tradition, the world was turned upside down, the normal order was reversed, the impossible became possible.

Shakespeare incorporates these elements into one of his best-known comedies, written in the early 1600's as entertainment for the celebration. A woman pretends to be a man. Twins each believe the other is dead after a shipwreck. A peasant thinks he can become a nobleman. What ensues is a delightful flight of fancy all in the pursuit of love!

Joe McKernan, Director

Marcia Wittmann, Producer
