Fall Show 2016

Gloucester High Theatre Program is happy to announce their 2016 Fall Production of 
TWELFTH NIGHT 
by William Shakespeare

Viola is shipwrecked on the coast of Illyria and she comes ashore with the help of a captain. She loses contact with her twin brother, Sebastian, whom she believes to be drowned. Disguising herself as a young man under the name Cesario, she enters the service of Duke Orsino, who has convinced himself that he is in love with Olivia who refuses to entertain love or marriage proposals from anyone until seven years have passed.  Olivia, however falls in love with 'Cesario', as she does not realize the Duke's messenger is a woman in disguise. In the meantime, Viola has fallen in love with the Duke creating a love triangle.

In the comic subplot, several characters conspire to make Olivia's pompous steward, Malvolio, believe that Olivia has fallen for him. This involves Olivia's uncle, Sir Toby Belch; another would-be suitor, a silly squire named Sir Andrew Aguecheek; her servants Maria and Fabian; and her fool, Feste. Meanwhile, Sebastian (who had been rescued by his friend, a sea captain, Antonio) arrives on the scene, which adds confusion of mistaken identity.
