Friday, April 28th marks the opening night for Prep’s 10th Anniversary show of Shakespeare in the Spring. This season brings an all new take on Twelfth Night.
Our rendition opens on board a 1920’s Jazz Era cruise ship. The Speakeasy Club is bouncing until it encounters a storm at sea. People are lost, identities confused, and the bounds of polite society mightily tested. As our heroin, Viola (Lily Mortensen) emerges dressed as a man in order to enter the Duke’s court, finds herself falling in love with the Duke himself, posing an awkward situation for all involved. The Duke (Michael Powers), however, is in love with the Lady Olivia (Sarah Zepeda) and sends his top servant, Viola (disguised as Cessario) on a mission to woo her. Olivia, however, finds herself far more enamored by the handsome Cessario than the Duke. Further awkward, Olivia is attended by Festi, a witty yet angsty entertainer (Delaney Schroeder) and a lovable though drunken uncle Toby (Brennan Bence). Mischief ensues while characters duel each other through a contest of wits, dances, and fights. In the style of every Shakespeare comedy, in the end, love conquers all.
Performances are in the Grant Activity Center Stage located on the Tri-Cities Prep Campus
