'Twelfth Night' Approaches

Believed to have been written for a celebration of “twelfth night,” the end of the Christmas season and beginning of Epiphany, Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (or What You Will) reflects the riotous, indulgent partying common to English life in middle January during 1602.

In the comedy coming to the Central Methodist University stage, people are not who they seem, characters fall in love with people they don’t know, genders are confused, and the most powerful people discover they have lost all control. In other words, it is a satisfying Shakespearean comedy.

The show opens Thursday, April 27, at 4:30 p.m. and continues Friday and Saturday nights, April 28-29 at 7:30 p.m., with a Sunday, April 30 matinée at 1:30 p.m., in the Little Theatre on the campus of Central Methodist University in Fayette.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $2 for CMU students with identification, and $5 for CMU faculty and staff; and they may be purchased at the door.
