Oberlin Summer Theater Festival: Twelfth Night

The Oberlin Summer Theater Festival (OSTF) produces family friendly classics in rotating repertory. This professional theater company, now entering its fifth season, is made up of Equity and non-Equity actors, directors, and crew members locally and from across the country, as well as Oberlin alumni and current students.

This summer, OSTF will present The Diary of Anne Frank (June 28 to August 2) Twelfth Night (July 5 to August 3) and  Light up the Sky (July 12 to August 3). 

One of William Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, Twelfth Night is a story of unrequited love. Viola is shipwrecked on the coast of an exotic land, where, while disguised as a young man, she falls in love with Duke Orsino, who is in love with the Countess Olivia, who in turn falls in love with Viola, thinking that she is a man. Only the hilarious hijinks of the gender bending Viola can unfold this comic knot. This easy-to-understand adaptation will be appropriate for the entire family (ages 6 and up), and will feature innovative staging, clowning, as well as an original score—the hallmarks of OSTF performances.

All performances are free but tickets are required. Call 440-775-8169 or send e-mail to ostf@oberlin.edu.
