“Twelfth Night” tells the tale of fraternal twins Viola and Sebastian, separated in a strange new land. Having survived a shipwreck and believing her brother Sebastian has been lost, Viola falls hopelessly in love with Duke Orsino and disguises herself as a man to enter his world so she can be near him. Music, merriment and swashbuckling adventure abound. It's a gloriously gender-jumbled romantic tale with the kind of comic confusion that only the Bard could create.

The production is directed by Christian Amato (Class of ’06).  Amato is founder of a New York City-based based acting company called the Theatre Project and currently works for Samuel French Inc in New York City.
