Let Theatre Bristol get you into the mood for loooovvee with William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night on the ARTspace stage. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. Bring your special someone and enjoy a night on the town with Twelfth Night. Tickets are available at theatrebristol.org.
Twelfth Night is a tragedy-quickly-turned-comedy as twins Viola and Sebastian are separated after a shipwreck on the Illyrian coast. Thinking the other dead, Viola and Sebastian mourn their lost sibling. As they work to regain their footing on their separate paths, they meet some of the interesting characters of Illyria.
Madly in love with Lady Olivia, Mason White rules Illyria as the illustrious Duke Orsino. Viola, played by Faith Vance, goes undercover using the alias “Cesario” to serve as a page to Mason’s Count Orsino. As “he” tries to woo the lovely Lady Olivia, played by Riley Lowe, on behalf of Count Orsino, Viola begins to fall in love with Count Orsino, herself.
Meanwhile, Lady Olivia’s aunt, the brilliant, jovial Lady Tabby Belch, enjoys partying, and galivants and rouses the night with Lady Alice Aguecheek. Enelisa Sutton and Whitney Brooks delight as Lady Tabby and Lady Alice, respectively. Chloe Campbell attends Lady Olivia as the clever Maria.
Luke Gray serves Sebastian as his loyal companion, Antonio. Cooper Knapp captivates as the witty jester, Feste. Zaiah Gray will have you ROFL as Malvolio, in his yellow stockings and cross-garters, and wrench your heart as Sebastian as he reunites with his long-lost sister, Viola.
Twelfth Night is directed by Camille Gray, and costumes, set, lights, and sound are designed by the Youth Service Board. Albert Tester takes the lead on lights and sound, and Luke Gray takes the lead on scenic design.
