"I laughed so hard, my stomach hurt," said a student upon seeing this year's Senior Drama Production, Twelfth Night

He was surprised by how funny a Shakespeare comedy can be.

Twelfth Night, or What You Will is a tale of unrequited love involving twins Sebastian and Viola who are separated in a shipwreck and forced to fend for themselves in a strange land.

Viola disguises herself as Cesario, a male servant for the Duke of Illyria. While wooing a countess on the behalf of the Duke, she suddenly finds herself the object of the countess's affections. 

With the arrival of Viola's brother, and a trick played upon the countess's steward, chaos ensues in this romantic comedy of mistaken identity.

Our students performed for more than 500 guests throughout the show's three-night run.

The cast and crew should be very proud of their work. It was also my first time directing a Shakespeare play. 

With costumes from the Pop-up Globe, a Freddie Mercury-styled Duke, two knights dressed like Split Enz, a boxing ring and PVC yellow stockings, it was the right mix for a very funny night.

If you have not seen a College Senior Production, then seriously consider keeping the second-to-last week of Term 2, 2020 free.
