Glenbard North Theatre to perform Shakespeare's 'Twelfth Night' Nov. 14-16

Glenbard North Theatre will present its fall production, "Twelfth Night," Nov. 14-16.

"Twelfth Night" is William Shakespeare's comedy in which a girl disguises herself as a man to be near the Count she adores, only to be pursued by the woman he loves. Set in a topsy-turvy world, this comedy devises a romantic plot around separated twins, misplaced passions and mistaken identity.

After a shipwreck, Viola finds herself on the shores of Illyria, devastated by the loss of her brother, Sebastian. Disguised as a boy, she finds comfort in the service of Duke Orsino. The Duke is in love with Lady Olivia and sends his new servant to her to try to gain her affections. Lady Olivia, rather than falling for the Duke, becomes enamored with his servant, the disguised Viola. This story is one of loss, longing and love all tied together with the merriment that comes from a classic Shakespeare comedy.

"Twelfth Night" will be presented in the Little Theatre at Glenbard North High School, 990 N. Kuhn Road in Carol Stream. All performances start at 7:30 p.m.
