DHS’s Ovation Theatre presents ‘Twelfth Night’

In News by Reporter News

Mistaken identities and misplaced siblings lead to madcap fun in Dawson High School Ovation Theatre’s production of the Shakespearean comedy “Twelfth Night.”

The play will run Oct. 13-15 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the campus auditorium.

Nobleman Orsino pines for Lady Olivia, who is in mourning for her dead brother.

Meanwhile, siblings Viola and Sebastian — separated by a shipwreck — fear each other has drowned.

Destitute, Viola disguises herself as a man, Cesario, and becomes a page to Orsino.

A love triangle results as Viola falls for her employer, and Lady Olivia falls for the disguised Cesario.

When Viola’s very-much-alive brother turns up — looking very much like Cesario — the plot thickens.

Pre-sale tickets are $6 for students and senior citizens and $7 for adults. Tickets are $8 at the door.
