“If music be the food of love, play on!” Jobsite’s Shakespeare tradition has become an annual centerpiece of the region’s cultural offerings. “No one ‘Rocks the Bard’ as hard, as daring, or as relevant as Jobsite and their players,” according to BroadwayWorld. A five-time finalist for the NEA’s Shakespeare in American Communities Award, Jobsite’s takes on Shakespeare have proven time and again to be exciting, “must-see” experiences.
In this joyous, rollicking comedy with music (composed by our own award-winning wunderkind Jeremy Douglass), a hurricane forces a shipwreck and young Viola believes her twin brother Sebastian drowned. Determined to survive on her own, she takes on a disguise to explore this new, mysterious land. Thus begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love … This treasured comedy brims with wild infatuations, swooning serenades, drunken high-jinks, and beloved characters.
Organized by Jobsite Theater
