DIRECTOR’S NOTES
Of all Shakespeare’s comedies, I find Twelfth Night to be the most delightful. The play is a fairytale, set in a faraway time, but still reverberating with the magic and the wonder of fantastical circumstances and characters.

This is life heightened, exaggerated and contrived, but recognizable. We know these characters; we respond to their problems, resonate with their joys, sympathize with their pains, and hope for their successes.

I would that we could all come to this play unprepared. Knowing not what to expect, what is to happen, who we might meet, and so find our delight in meeting these fine (and not so fine) souls as they love, pursue, battle, and posture their way through a world
that is high fantastical. The rules are few; the possibilities seem limitless, and reality is kept at bay for a time while we are allowed to revel in this most delightful world.

Let time stop for a bit while you enjoy these characters and their
story.

Oh, and please turn off your phone! Thanks for double checking.


We are deeply saddened by the recent loss of three friends of the University Theatre and wish to dedicate this production to their memory.

Charles Henry Babcock, Jr.
Whose generosity greatly enriched our work

Dr. Bashir El Beshti
Teacher of Shakespeare, Colleague, Soccer Coach, and Friend

Col. Carl L. Whitney
Long-time season ticket holder and loyal supporter of the theatre


“But be contented: when that fell arrest
Without all bail shall carry me away,
My life hath in this line some interest,
Which for memorial still with thee shall stay.”
