Tickets for the next Casper College Theatre production, Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” or “What You Will,” will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, Feb. 16.
“Shakespeare’s charming romantic comedy about a pair of twins is just the show for the wintertime blues,” said Richard Burk, director.
The story tells the tale of twins Viola and Sebastian who become separated in a stormy shipwreck. “Presuming the other lost, they make their way through into Illyria, where they meet Duke Orsino, who loves the Lady Olivia, who will have none of him, but falls for Viola (disguised as “Cesario” the servant to Orsino). Meanwhile Olivia’s kinsman Sir Toby Belch and Maria, along with Feste the Fool, Sir Andrea Aguecheek, and Fabian all wreak havoc on poor puritanical Malvolio. This play is charming, farcical, cheerful, and fun,” said Burk.
The play will run February 23, 25, 26 and March 1 through 5 beginning each night at 7:30 p.m. on the McMurry Mainstage of the Gertrude Krampert Theatre Complex. Assisting Burk will be Sean McIntosh with scenic and lighting design and Douglas Garland with costume design and makeup.
Tickets for “Twelfth Night,” or “What You Will” are $12 for adults and $10 for children and teens, ages 5 to 18. Tickets can be purchased at the Krampert Theatre Complex box office between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, by phone at 268-2500, or one hour before each performance, for that performance only.
