Shakespeare-in-the-Park Production of Twelfth Night

The Department of English Theater/Drama Program would like to announce its 6th annual “Shakespeare-in-the-Park” production of William Shakespeare’s comedy, Twelfth Night. Directed by Professor Pam Monteleone, the cast features UNF students and members of the Jacksonville community. 

A shipwreck, separated identical twins, mistaken identities, cross-dressing, drunken knights, singing, and one pair of yellow stockings characterize the mad antics of Olivia’s household as the characters fall in and out of love in the topsy-turvy world of Twelfth Night.

Time: 8:00 p.m.
Dates and Locations: April 7 & 8 at the UNF Green; April 10 & 11 at Johansen Park in Atlantic Beach (rain date April 12); and April 17 & 18 at the Church of the Good Shepherd. On Friday, April 17, a panel discussion will follow the performance.
Cost: All performances are free and open to the public.
