Story: An ALL-STAR cast leads this must-see tale of unrequited love that is both hilarious and heartbreaking. Twelfth Night starts when a ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.

This is not just any Shakespeare play. It is a fresh, funny take on the beloved rom-com. It features poetic design, original music composed just for this production, and a killer cast of actors! Don't miss this chance to get together with other ESU members and meet new members. Watch this 30-second video:
