Twelfth Night

Hosted by Inside Out Theatre

The Good Host program is collaborating with Pine Tree Players in Canmore to provide an audio-described performance of Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare on August 21st at 6:30 PM MST.

Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare is directed by Shelby Reinitz as part of the Canmore Summer Theatre Festival.

Twelfth Night follows the story of Viola, who, believing her brother is dead after a terrible shipwreck, goes undercover as a man named Cesario to take a position as Duke Orsino’s page. Orsino is in love with Olivia. Viola falls in love with Orsino and Olivia falls in love with Cesario. This would be bad enough but when Viola’s brother Sebastian arrives, chaos ensues.

Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare’s best romantic comedies and involves themes of gender, miscommunication, unrequited love, and desire.

Our production is set in the Regency Period and features a talented cast of female and non-binary actors.

Accessibility

The performance on August 21st will be audio-described.
