Photo Flash: First Look At Mountain Art Theatre's TWELFTH NIGHT

Mountain Art Theatre and The Feichter Studio present William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night directed by Dwight Chiles. February 9-18 at The Fangmeyer Theatre at the Haywood Regional Arts Theatre (HART) in Waynesville, NC. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm. Sunday matinees at 2pm.

Chile's unique vision brings a complete reverse-gender casting to Shakespeare's last and arguably best comedy. This creates the opportunity for eight of WNC's finest female actors to take on as many of Shakespeare's most comedic and romantic male characters. As well, three male actors have the privilege and challenge of portraying three of Shakespeare's most intriguing female characters.


All of this results in a startlingly fresh interpretation of Shakespeare's hilariously fevered, and manic love story. Twelfth Night, a play already centrally themed around gender roles and expectations, gender-bending, and identity is a must-see, highly anticipated follow up to Mountain Art Theatre's last production at HART, the critically acclaimed and audience favorite, Romeo and Juliet.

STARRING Christine Caldemeyer (Duke Orsino), Anna Denson (Antonio, Captain) Laura Gregory (Sebastien), Jane Hallstrom (Feste), Allen Law (Olivia), Samantha LeBrocq (Malvolio), Erin McCarson (Sir Toby Belch), Martine Rose (Valentine), Jane Hallstrom (Feste), Josephine Thomas (Sir Andrew Aguecheek), Henry Williamson III (Viola), David Anthony Yeates (Maria).

Creative Team: Abby Auman (Lights), Christine Caldemeyer (Costumes), Dwight Chiles (Direction, Sets, Sound), Kristi Deville (Choreography), Ben Mackel (Original Music), Elissa Peragine (Stage Management), Rachel McCrain (Assistant Stage Manager).
