Montford Park Players stages Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, July 10-Aug. 1 at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre.
Press release from MPP:
The Montford Park Players, North Carolina’s longest running Shakespeare Festival, opens Twelfth Night July 10 through August 1 at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre. With a manic energy plus a romantic soul, William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night promises a comic ride to the end. Set during the 1920’s, romantic entanglements abound as characters find love in all the wrong places. In love with the Lady Olivia, Count Orsino sends his trusted manservant to woo her in his stead. Unbeknownst to him, young Cessario is actually Viola, a shipwreck survivor in disguise as a man. Complications arise when Viola’s efforts backfire, resulting in Olivia falling in love, not with Count Orsino, but the disguised Viola instead! To that add a drunken knight, scheming servants, and an insane fool in what is one of Shakespeare’s finest comedies.
Twelfth Night will play Fridays through Sundays at 7:30 pm. The productions are free and donations are gratefully accepted at intermission. Bring a picnic and your favorite beverage, and bring your canine companion! MPP is one of the most dog-friendly places in town.
