Shakespeare Troupe of South Florida to present Twelfth Night

August 14th & 15th

“Better a witty fool, than a foolish wit.” – William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

The Shakespeare Troupe of South Flori-da will present their production of Twelfth Night for two performances only – at the Mizner Park Cultural Center in Boca Raton on August 14th, and at the Delray Beach Playhouse on August 15th.

One of William Shakespeare’s most popular plays, Twelfth Night is a romantic comedy of love and ambition, and centers on twins Viola and Sebastian. Separated in a shipwreck, each believes the other has been lost. Viola disguises herself as a young man named Cesario, and the now identical sister and brother separately seek their fortunes in the sea-coast country of Illyria. Viola/Cesario unwittingly captures the heart of the wealthy countess Olivia and ro-mantic and comedic complications ensue.
The play is believed to have been written between 1601 and 1602 as a Twelfth Night entertainment for the close of the Christ-mas season, and features several of Shake-speare’s most iconic characters, including Sir Toby Belch, Sir Andrew Aguecheek, the fool Feste, and Malvolio the pompous stew-ard of Countess Olivia’s household.

General Admission tickets for Twelfth Night are available online and are Free. There are also VIP tickets available for each performance.
