Last week, we met with the Acting Company and creative team of Twelfth Night for our first look at the wild and wacky carnival world of Illyria. Composer Veda Hille played through her original music for the production with Musical Director Anton Lipovetsky, which was followed by design presentations from Pam Johnson (Set Designer) and Mara Gottler (Costume Designer).

We can’t wait to see how this story comes to life over the coming weeks, and we certainly aren’t the only ones eager to see what’s ahead. As director Diana Donnelly tells us, “The actors are smart and wild and curious. We are all embracing the adventure. You know that click-click sound when a roller coaster starts its journey towards the sky? The way your stomach flips, but you can’t stop grinning? That is what the beginning of a rehearsal process feels like.”
