Did not make it to the Pop-Up Globe this year? - fear not! Fresh from the other side of the world we bring our gift to you in the shape of the charming comedy that is "Twelfth Night" If you and your family are considering an ideal summer getaway - a paradise awaits.
It's called Illyria, and will materialize in all its fabulous glory on the ATEC stage. Come be shipwrecked with us in an enchanted, song and dance filled land of Celtic charm. This sweet alternative reality deploys a cast of young actors whose delivery of Shakespeare is simply perfect.
The story finds the clever Viola shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria, separated from her beloved twin brother, Sebastian, whom she believes is lost at sea. She dresses herself as a boy to serve the self loving Orsino, leading to a big, bright ball of confusion. Irresistibly full of song and dance the show asks us to "see through the eyes of another, hear through the ears of somebody else"
Seeing through the eyes of another is what theatre is all about, so come and see Twelfth Night through the eyes of our young actors and judge for yourself why, in this our Gala Year we are proud to celebrate 10 years of producing 'outstanding young people's theatre'.
Groundling tickets note :
Celebrating 10 years we are offering $10 (plus fees and limited to 40) groundling tickets. An opportunity to experience Shakespeare exactly as the People of his time would have done by standing. But we are cheating a little and you are welcome to bring a cushion if you like. Be taken back to the 17th century and enjoy this unique party on the floor of our Atec Globe. Go on give your imagination a fantastic night out!
