“I am all the daughters of my father’s house,
And all the brothers too.”
Twelfth Night is a tale of unrequited love – hilarious and heartbreaking. Twins are separated in a shipwreck, and forced to fend for themselves in a strange land. The first twin, Viola, falls in love with Orsino, who dotes on OIivia, who falls for Viola but is idolised by Malvolio. Enter Sebastian, who is the spitting image of his twin sister…
Considered to be one of William Shakespeare’s greatest works and dubbed “The Perfect Comedy,” Twelfth Night has been entertaining audiences since its premiere performance in 1602.
Behind the Scenes Camp will give students the opportunity to work on all the technical, backstage, and design elements. Campers will work with the directing team to take the production from design to the stage. Campers will meet with the directing team at a “Pre-Production Meeting” to begin collaborating on design for sets, costumes, props, and lights. The week of camp will be spent building and assembling all these elements, before transitioning to crew roles for the actual show. During the production, Behind the Scenes campers will serve as running crew, stage management, lighting crew, costumes crew, and more! This camp will give you a unique opportunity to work on the technical aspects of a production from their inception to their execution. Don’t miss out on building your portfolio as a theater technician, and getting a chance to work on this classic Shakespearian comedy!
