William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night

Filed under: Entertainement, Theater

I acted in a community theater production of William Shakespeare’s popular comedy Twelfth Night. We put the show on 4 times, starting on the 12th of September, and running every Friday and Saturday night until the 20th. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I was cast as Malvolio, the closest thing in the show to a villain. In something of a departure from the standard staging of the play, our director Cathy Hoyt decided to set the thing in a place much more like the American Old West than the coast of the Adriatic Sea. As a result, my Malvolio wore yellow chaps instead of cross-gartered yellow stockings. Here are the full credits for our show:
