Twelfth Night features a cast 14 actors and original music. The play takes the audience to Illyria, where a shipwrecked Viola disguises herself as a boy, goes to work for the Duke Orsino and falls in love with him, who in turn loves the fair lady Olivia. Misunderstandings and misplaced love abound in this delightful comedy. The title of the play refers to the “twelfth night of Christmas,” and some historians believe that the play was originally written and performed for the holiday.
