Twelfth Night productions began in 1984 as an educational theater experience for children, and then expanded as those children grew. It has evolved from a summer student theatrical production to a multi-generational performing arts organization. Our troupe of players now includes high school through college students and adults. Since education and mentorship opportunities form our core, our membership includes teachers from a variety of disciplines including music, dance, and theater. As our students mature, they become mentors to the new talent joining us. The positive effect on both is visible on and off the stage. As a producing organization, we offer opportunities for mentoring and participating in the following areas: acting, directing, stage management, hair and make-up, scene design and construction, lighting design, costume design and sound design. This approach has come to fruition as students have taken on significant responsibilities in our summer productions as a part of their senior project, or have gone on to study various elements of the performing arts in college.
