Synetic Theater Will Transform into Illyria Speakeasy for Pre-Valentine's Party, 2/13
Synetic Theater transforms into the Illyria Speakeasy for a special pre-show event on Thursday February 13 at 7pm. Guests will pick up their tickets and give a bouncer the password to enter Illyria, a 1920s-style speakeasy! Music and decor from the era will set the mood and a guest mixologist will keep the signature cocktails flowing at an open bar. At 8pm, guests will head into the theater to take in the 1920s-set Twelfth Night. Costumes are highly encouraged! Tickets for this event are $45-$60 and can be purchased at www.synetictheater.org or 866.811.4111. A romantic comedy perfect for Valentine's Day, Synetic Theater will also have regularly scheduled performances all Valentine's Weekend!
Set in the roaring 20s and inspired by the comedy of silent film era stars Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, Twelfth Night tells the tale of fraternal twins, Viola and Sebastian, separated in a strange new land. Having survived a shipwreck and believing her brother Sebastian has been lost, Viola falls hopelessly in love with Duke Orsino and disguises herself as a man to enter his services. Synetic's take on Twelfth Night is a fast-paced and hilarious comedy enhanced by Synetic's movement-based storytelling and influenced by 1920s dance and choreography!
