The Spencertown Academy is pleased to sponsor this production of Twelfth Night at the Spencertown Town Park.
The Rooted Voyageurs is a theater company, founded by Devante Owens (Artistic Director) and Zoe Wohlfeld (Managing Producer), whose mission is to celebrate community through live performance. Their company members are primarily from Columbia County, NY and Berkshire County, MA.
The performance is donation based, you can pay as much as you want or nothing at all. This bare-bones production is abridged and will run 1 hour and 15 minutes. Bring your own seating and a picnic!
Twelfth Night is a romantic comedy by William Shakespeare. The play centers around twins (Viola and Sebastian) that are separated in a shipwreck. Mayhem ensues when Viola disguises herself as a man and becomes a servant to Duke Orsino, who is desperately wooing the Countess Olivia. It’s a story of unrequited love and mistaken identity, with some practical jokes along the way.
This production is made possible possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
