Georgia Southern Theatre & Performance Celebrates Love and Madness with William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night”

CLASS_TheatreWebSlides-04 (1)

ComArts_IconThe Theatre & Performance program at Georgia Southern University opens the spring with William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” March 3, 4, and 5 in the Performing Arts Center.

Directed by Georgia Southern Alum Gage Crook, “Twelfth Night” follows lovesick Orsino as he sends his servant Cesario (who is actually the maiden Viola in disguise) to plead on his behalf for the heart of the indifferent Olivia. Meanwhile, an alliance of servants and hangers-on fight a battle of wits against the high-handedness of the pompous Malvolio.

Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, “Twelfth Night” combines high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with Shakespeare’s poetry.

We are pleased to introduce some new faces to the Georgia Southern stage with debut performances by Michelle Daly as Viola, Ryan Shell as Orsino, Michael Adedeji as Toby Belch, and Daja Holmes as Olivia. Returning to the stage are audience favorites Whitakter Gardner as Malvoloio, and Tori Townes as Feste.

“Twelfth Night” opens Thursday, March 3 and runs through Saturday, March 5. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. The play is family friendly and a great theatre experience for young children. Performances are in the Performing Arts Center. Three performances only!

Student and youth tickets are $6. Faculty, staff and community tickets are $12. All seating is general admission. Group prices are available, contact the box office for information.

The house opens at 7 p.m., and we encourage audience members to arrive no later than 7:15 p.m. to ensure good seats. The balcony will serve as overflow and late seating.
