Join the director (Andy Kirtland) and cast members of Prime Stage Theatre's fado-flavored production of Twelfth Night. Match wits with one of Shakespeare’s most dynamic heroines in this hilarious tale of love, music and courage. Set in the colorful world of Portugal, Twelfth Night tickles the imagination as Viola disguises herself as a page boy to find her twin brother but finds herself at the center of a crazy love triangle. If music be the food of love, play on!
Come to The Library Public House at 6PM to enjoy dinner and drinks with fellow Britsburgh Arts lovers. At 7pm, the entertainment will begin including scene readings with Carolyn Jerz (Viola) and Alison Weisgall (Olivia). Also Monica Stephenson (composer) will speak about the music she has composed for the piece, and Dana Babal (Feste) will play a song. There will be Q&A and the director, Andy Kirtland will talk about his inspiration for the play. Stick around afterwards to enjoy social time with fellow Britsburghers.
