“Be not afraid of greatness:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness,
And some have greatness thrust upon ’em.”
– TWELFTH NIGHT; Act II, Scene 5
NAKED STAGES and the VALHALLA SHAKESPEARE PROJECT will bring their own modern twist to one of the Bard’s greatest comedies this May with an all-star cast of Nashville favorites joined by promising newcomers.
Founding Artistic Director Mark Cabus plays Orsino and Feste with Nashville Shakespeare Festival Artistic Director Denice Hicks playing Olivia and the Captain. Ensemble Members Claire Syler (Viola/Caesario), Brian Webb Russell (Malvolio/Antonio) and John Mauldin (Sir Toby/Valentine) round out the stellar veteran actors in TWELFTH NIGHT’s cast.
Those veterans are complemented by MTSU student Patrick Benneyworth as Sebastian and Fabian, Belmont student Brianne Angarole playing Maria and the Priest and MTSU student Dustin Napier as Sir Andrew and Curio.
The co-production, directed by Ensemble member Tee Quillin, will start its run in Nashville at Belmont University’s Black Box Theatre (Troutt Theatre Complex, 2100 Belmont Boulevard) May 8-17. Its final performances are at Valhalla Farms in Woodbury (3081 Jimtown Road) on May 31 and June 1.
Jealously, mistaken identity, and cross-dressing all combine in the riotously romantic TWELFTH NIGHT, an audience favorite for the past four hundred years. Don’t miss it!
