The University of Maine at Presque Isle is proud to present Shakespeare & Company for a one-night-only performance.


The Bard’s beloved comedy, Twelfth Night, will be performed on Tuesday, March 8 at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium at Wieden Hall. Troupe members will provide a short talk-back for the audience after the show. All campus and community members are invited to attend this special, free admission event. Donations for future cultural arts programming will be accepted at the door.

Twelfth Night is a comedy full of tricks, traps and disguises. Shipwrecked in a foreign land and assuming her twin brother Sebastian is dead, the main character, Viola, disguises herself as a man (Cesario) in order to survive, and swiftly finds herself in a love triangle: pining for the Duke she serves, who desires the neighboring Countess Olivia, who only has eyes for Cesario.
