Pigeon Creek Bringing TWELFTH NIGHT To The Sauk
The Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company (PCSC) will present William Shakespeare's romantic comedy "Twelfth Night" for one performance only at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2 at The Sauk, Hillsdale County's Community Theatre.
The PCSC is Michigan's only year-round, professional touring Shakespeare company. This is their third annual visit to The Sauk. Frequently nominated for awards for Shakespearean performance, the company uses staging practices from Shakespeare's own time to bring his plays to life in a lively, audience-interactive and accessible atmosphere.
"Twelfth Night" is a story of mistaken identity, concealed truth, and comic revelation. When siblings, Viola and Sebastian, are shipwrecked off the coastal region of Illyria, each believes the other to be dead. Viola disguises herself as a man to find employment but unintentionally catches the eye of Olivia, the beloved of her new employer, Duke Orsino. To make matters worse, Viola has fallen for the Duke. The situation gets no less complicated when Sebastian arrives on the scene and is quickly mistaken for his sister, the disguised Viola, and finds himself married to Olivia.
"We are thrilled to welcome the PCSC back to The Sauk," said Sauk Executive Director Trinity Bird. "In addition to the productions we produce, our board of directors believes it is important to bring unique theatrical experiences to our patrons. PCSC is among the best of the best."
All tickets are $10. Tickets can be purchased by calling 517-849-9100 or visiting www.thesauk.org. The Sauk Theatre is located at 240 E. Chicago in Jonesville. Tickets will be available at the door starting at 6 p.m. on the evening of the performance. For more information about PCSC, visit www.pcshakespeare.com.
