Printer-friendly version

MHS Theatre will present William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night  for three nights this week at the Performing Arts Center.

Performances will take place on Thursday, Feb. 18 and the following two nights. All three performances begin at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available at the Middleton Theatre website or at the door and are $8 for adults and $6 for students/seniors. Twelfth Night is directed by American Players Theatre core company member Tim Gittings and features a cast and crew of more than 60 high school students.

Twelfth Night is the story of Orsino, the Duke of Illyria who attempts to woo the Countess Olivia. The shipwrecked Viola, thinking she has lost her brother at sea, disguises herself as a man, takes on the name Cesario, and enters the Duke's service. And then, in traditional Shakespearean style, comedy ensues as love is confused.
