Austin Shakespeare presents Young Shakespeare "Steampunk" Twelfth Night
For its 8th season, Young Shakespeare, Austin Shakespeare’s teen company, will transform Richard Garriott de Cayeux’s outdoor Curtain Theater for a “Steampunk” production of the romantic comedy Twelfth Night.
Twelfth Night is the story of Viola, a young girl disguised as the boy servant Cesario, in the fantastic world of Illyria. Viola falls head over heels in love with her master, Duke Orsino, as he sends her to woo for him Olivia, the woman he loves. The story of mistaken identities, hilarious love triangles and joyous youth is also well-known for the silliest of meanies, Malvolio, who is tricked into wearing a distinctively unusual outfit to woo his mistress Olivia.
