Turning Glass Shakespeare, the 2014–15 MFA company of Mary Baldwin University’s Shakespeare and Performance graduate program, announces a special performance of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night with fun activities for the whole family.
Turning Glass Shakespeare created this hour-long production of Shakespeare’s comedy as an education show to tour schools. This special performance is part of the company’s MFA Festival and includes a series of exciting educational workshops. Children will have the opportunity to learn about music, Shakespearean costumes, face painting, and smiling in the style of the grave Malvolio, one of the play’s most memorable comic characters. There will also be delicious treats including King Cakes, popcorn, and lemonade.
The Family Day performance takes place on the fifth floor of the Masonic Building, 13 W. Beverley Street, on Saturday, March 28. The activities will start at 1 p.m. followed by the Twelfth Night performance at 2 p.m. The event is pay-what-you-will.
