Twelfth Night - Montana Shakespeare in the Parks

Wednesday, June 27, 2012, from 8:00pm to 10:00pm
Duck Pond

Shakespeare's delightful comedy of wild infatuation and mistaken identities. Shipwrecked on the rocky coast of Illyria, the beautiful and daring Viola disguises herself as a man to protect her honor in this strange land, and finds employment as a page in the court of the lovesick Duke Orsino. But just as Viola falls in love with her new boss, the beautiful Olivia - whom Orsino is pursuing - finds herself attracted to this new young man, who's really Viola in disguise. Meanwhile, the servant Maria and the drunken Sir Toby Belch conspire to enact a riotous revenge on the hilariously pompous servant Malvolio. Filled with Shakespeare's most memorable comedic characters, sweet romantic longings and side-splitting situations, our 40th summer season sets sail for terrific fun with this magical comedy!

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks celebrates 40 seasons with a first time ever production of Hamlet, and the classic love soaked comedy Twelfth Night. The company of professional actors performs on MSU campus' 'Duck Pond lawn' and then tours throughout the summer playing in 59 communities across Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and Washington.
