William Shakespeare’s comedy Twelfth Night finds Orsino, the Duke of lllyria, in love with his neighbor, the Countess Olivia. She has sworn to avoid men’s company for seven years while she mourns the death of her brother, so rejects him. Nearby a group of sailors arrive on shore with a young woman, Viola, who has survived a shipwreck in a storm at sea. Viola mourns the loss of her twin brother but decides to dress as a boy to get work as a page to Duke Orsino.
And that’s only the beginning!
Our Summer Shakespeare Intensive for Teens is four weeks of afternoon sessions designed to provide training in physical theater, movement and voice work, and to enhance acting techniques, character development skills and ensemble building through immersion in the world of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. The four weeks of afternoon rehearsals will also include body and vocal training, theatre games and improvisation activities and will culminate gloriously in two rollicking, public performances of Twelfth Night.
