Longwood to present Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’

Longwood University Theatre’s production of the Shakespearean comedy Twelfth Night will be presented Feb. 17-21 in Jarman Auditorium.

Performances in the one-week engagement will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and at 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10 for general admission; $8 for senior citizens, Longwood faculty/staff and students from other colleges/schools; and $6 for Longwood students with ID.

Visit www.longwoodtickets.edu or call the box office (434) 395-2474) for tickets. The box office is on the first floor of the Center for Communication Studies and Theatre, located at the corner of Franklin and Race streets.

Because this is the first Longwood Theatre production in Jarman since 2009, the Office of Alumni and Career Services is extending a special invitation to alumni for the Saturday performance. There will be an alumni reception at 5 p.m. in the Maugans Alumni Center and an alumni walk to Jarman at 6:30 p.m.

“This is a rollicking comedy in which strange romance gives way to a miracle,” said Bruce Speas, associate professor of theatre, who is directing the production. “It’s about love lost, love found and love turned upside down.”
