Young Shakespeare Players East debut with Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night, or What You Will has been called “the most nearly perfect happy comedy ever written.”

It is one of Shakespeare’s greatest masterpieces — filled with lyricism and music, gorgeous language, disguise and surprise, and some of the funniest scenes and characters Shakespeare ever created. The play also deals with themes very relevant today such as loss, love, gender, empathy, and bullying.

There are two YSP casts performing Twelfth Night, one with 12 actors and one with 13 actors. Casts are mixed age from 7 to 18 years old. Each cast will perform twice and be the tech crew for the other cast. Admission is FREE, family friendly, and open to the public.

When: Saturday & Sunday December 6th & 7th at 1pm and 6pm
Where: The Shea Theater, 71 Avenue A, Turners Falls, MA
What: Young Shakespeare Players East, an ensemble comprised of young people ages 7-18 presents Twelfth Night. All matinee and evening performances are free and open to the public.
