A “Prince-inspired world” the setting for Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night"

The Theater Department takes to the stage in its fun and free-wheeling adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy, “Twelfth Night,” on Friday, Nov. 18,  at 7:30 p.m. in Tansill Theater. Additional performances are scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 20, at 2 p.m.

Director Ken Prestininzi, associate professor of theater, said "Love, loss and gender definitions in our production of ‘Twelfth Night’ are infused with the sensibility of the rock artist Prince and the visual artists Bill Viola and Yayoi Kusama. Our Illyria, the setting for Shakespeare's comedy, ‘Twelfth Night,’ is infused with the dangers and pleasures found in the work of such artists as well as in ourselves and Shakespeare’s text."

Tickets are $6 for students, seniors and military, and $12 for general admission, and can be purchased online.
