Thursday & Friday Matinees 11:00am
After 17 wondrous years of Open Air Summer Shakespeare in Mona Vale Gardens, Top Dog Theatre have come indoors to tread the boards of the magnificent Isaac Theatre Royal and perform Twelfth Night, one of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays.
Twelfth Night is Shakespeare’s brilliant fast-paced romantic comedy, brimming with interwoven plots of romance, mistaken identities, drunken songs and dances, farcical fights and practical jokes to delight and entertain the audience. Separated from her twin brother Sebastian in a shipwreck, Viola disguises herself as a boy and becomes a servant to Duke Orsino. So begins this whirlwind tale where music is the food of love and anything is possible for these romantic castaways!
Come and revel with some of Shakespeare’s most notorious characters – Malvolia, resplendent in her yellow stockings, the wise jester, Feste, and of course the drunken rogue, Sir Toby Belch. “A performance as never seen before”, says director, Derek Doddington. With a top-class cast, Twelfth Night aims to bring out every inch of comedy to attract all ages.
