TWELFTH NIGHT opens March 10!

Twelfth Night: or What You Will opens at West Linn High School on March 10, 2023.

If music be the food of love….ROCK ON! Paying homage to the mid 90s alternative music scene, the West Linn High School Theatre Arts Department presents Shakespeare’s indelible comedy, Twelfth Night. Set in a Pacific Northwest town near the sea, meet a cast of characters, including a one-hit-wonder former pop queen; a lovelorn mall record shop owner; a stodgy music manager; a young woman trying to make her mark on the world; and three Nirvana wannabes! With musical performances, a host of physical gags, and a very over-sized mall garbage bin, the production presents an MTV twist on a Shakespearean classic. The show runs March 10, 11, 16, 17, and 18. Curtain is at 7 pm for all shows. Reserve tickets through the ticket link above.
