Playhouse 2000 & City of Kerrville present "Shakespeare In The Park 2015"


The fourth installment in the City of Kerrville's "Shakespeare In The Park" series, the boisterous comedy Twelfth Night, will be seen on Friday and Saturday, June 5 and 6 at 8 pm on the Cailloux Theater Grounds between Main and Jefferson Street in Downtown Kerrville. Guests may arrive as early as they please in order to claim the best "seats."
One of the Bard's best-loved comedies, Twelfth Night centers on the twins Viola and Sebastian, who are separated in a shipwreck. Viola, disguised as a boy, falls in love with Duke Orsino, who in turn is in love with the Countess Olivia. Then, upon meeting Viola, Countess Olivia falls in love with her thinking she is a man.
"Twelfth Night is wonderful example of Shakespeare's genius as a comedian" says the play's director, Sarah Distel. "Audiences love the ribald humor, the zany plot, and the happy ending."
As it always has been, "Shakespeare In the Park" is presented free of admission charge, and play-goers are encouraged to bring along picnics, blankets and lawn chairs. Of course, even Shakespeare's comedies have some adult themes, but this presentation of Twelfth Night is fine for the entire family.
