HARRISBURG, Pa. – The acclaimed Aquila Theatre Company brings one of William Shakespeare’s funniest and most charming comedies, “Twelfth Night,” to Live at Rose Lehrman on Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, at 7:30 p.m., in the Rose Lehrman Arts Center on the Harrisburg Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College.
Written in 1600 and set against a background of romance and mystery, this hilarious story of identical twins and mistaken identity explores the universal themes of love.
The Aquila Theatre production will feature a remarkable, innovative design and unique physical staging. Actors will climb and swing from ropes and rigging suspended from above. The large ropes will be used to create visual spaces that can change from treelike forms to spaces on a ship. The Aquila Theatre production will also use original music and powerful projections that will make “Twelfth Night” an experience not to be missed.
Join the cast of Aquila Theatre Company, at 6:30 p.m., for a pre-show chat.
This tour engagement of Aquila Theatre Company is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
