|"12th Nite" Presents Modern Twist|
|Friday, 18 November 2011 00:00 ||
Back in high school, most of us dreaded English literature classes in which the teacher would rant about Shakespeare and his idealistic views. We would stare at the clock, waiting for the seconds to go by. We never really understood anything now, did we? It was just the way Shakespeare was taught to us that made it so boring and inaccessible. Well, we do not have to go through that anymore! Because guess what? The Drexel Players kick off their 2011-12 season on Nov. 17 with a wacky and fun-filled version of Shakespeare's comedy "The Twelfth Night."
The Drexel Players started the 2011-12 season with their rendition of Shakespeare's "The Twelfth Night," called "12th Nite," directed by Nick Anselmo. Tickets are $15 for the general public and $5 for students and faculty with a Drexel ID.
Laurel Hostak, who plays the leading role of Viola in "12th Nite," said: "This is my favorite Shakespeare comedy. It was challenging but at the same time fun to find the moments you could connect to emotionally and moments that are really laugh-out-loud funny."
"12th Nite" plays at the Mandell Theater (33rd and Chestnut streets) from Nov. 17 to Nov. 20. The show is 90 minutes long. Showtimes are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., Friday at 10 a.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. The Friday morning show will be followed by a talk-back with the cast. Tickets are for $15 for the general public and $5 for students, faculty and professional staff with a Drexel ID. For more information, visit www.drexelplayers.com.
I highly recommend taking the time from your busy schedules to come watch the hilarious and entertaining "12th Nite." It's a great stress buster, and I guarantee you won't stop laughing!
