Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre's performance of Twelfth Night
June 25, 2016 · 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Be sure to mark June 25 on your calendars for a fantastic summer treat as the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre (AST) returns to Petit Jean for another family-friendly production of a Shakespearian classic. This year AST will perform a one-hour adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night here at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute. We'll also have food trucks from the Conway Food Truck Association on site from 4-6, so come hungry.
To set the mood for the play, here’s the description from AST:
Inspired by carnivals of yesteryear, our actors will arrive ready to dazzle and delight the audience with the tale of twins Viola and Sebastian, separated by a storm at sea. The shipwrecked siblings discover new places, meet new people, and explore new possibilities as they try to find their way back to one another. Feste is our ringleader, a magician who brings the play to life by enlisting the talents of his gifted and colorful troop of entertainers in this fast-paced, funny and family-friendly production. With a performance that includes sword-fighting, dancing and singing (and maybe a few audience members!), Twelfth Night has a little something spectacular for everyone.
We hope you’ll join us for this great community event.
