The Bear Creek School's Fine Arts Department Presents Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night"
Many consider Twelfth Night the funniest of Shakespeare's comedies, and Bear Creek has prepared the Bard's stew just "as you like it." The ingredients are: a knight, an egomaniacal steward, a girl pretending to be a boy, an identical missing dead brother, a love-struck count, a mourning maiden, an unruly cousin, and several duped individuals. The story opens as Duke Orsino moons over Countess Olivia who is mourning her dead brother. Meanwhile, Viola and her twin brother Sebastian are shipwrecked. He goes missing, and she decides to disguise herself as a boy ('Cesario') and lands a job as a page in the Duke's court. Hilarity ensues and the result is a play so cleverly contrived as to induce laughter and leave the audience to declare, as does Dickens' Oliver Twist, "Please, sir, I want some more."
