The Department of Dramatic Arts is presenting its mainstage production of a Shakespearean classic –Twelfth Night. The production of the popular comedy comes with a twist, it is set in the 1950s rather than the middle ages. In this retroactively reformed take on a well-known play, the focus is on letting audiences experience a classic plot within an ‘era of soul-searching country blues’.
Although the production is not a musical, there is a host of contemporary music and culture influence seen throughout. The production is a directorial collaboration between Dramatic Arts faculty Gyllian Raby and Danielle Wilson, assisted by Keavy Lynch.
This first main-stage production of the Department of Dramatics Arts’ 2013-14 Season showcases the talents of students in the undergraduate program. Come out and support your fellow students in their endeavours to take on a dauntingly complex and wondrous play.
This production runs November 7, 8 and 9, 2013 at 7:30 p.m., and November 8 at 11:30 a.m., held at the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre, Brock University. Tickets are $18.
