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.
