Kicking off the outdoor touring season with a summer twist is another Shakespeare mistaken identity piece with a cross dressing theme. Twelfth Night follows a shipwrecked heroine named Viola into the exotic and STRANGE land of Ilyria. Disguising herself as a man and gaining employment with the local love sick Duke, Viola embroils herself with a drunken band of beach combers, a stiff upper lip would be suitor with a strange fashion sense, a love struck women whose interested in her and a nerdy guy who wants to pick a fight, well sort of...as she searches for her long lost brother.
