Door Shakespeare will present “Roaming Performances” of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night on Sundays and Tuesdays this season.
The troupe will perform at Bjorklunden in Baileys Harbor, on an estate of over 400 acres of wooden trails and Lake Michigan shoreline. This year a few of the opening scenes of Twelfth Night will be set only a short distance from the main performance area. Though audience members will still have the option to remain seated without missing plot details.
“We love the adaptability of the garden as a performance venue,” said Artistic Director Jerry Gomis. “I wanted to broaden the playing space this year. I think the usage of these locations will enhance the theater experience of the audience, viewing these scenes in an organic setting, and then returning to stage lights for the remainder of the play as the sky begins to dim.”
“[Twelfth Night] is filled with endearing characters,” continued Gomis, “has wonderfully fun conflicts, pranks, and music. Shakespeare uses his full comedic arsenal!”
Door Shakespeare will present Twelfth Night in repertory with Joseph Hanreddy and J.R. Sullivan’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice from July 8 through August 21. Tickets will be available May 1. For more information or to order tickets call 920.839.1500 or visit http://www.doorshakespeare.com.
