Gasping on the shores of Illyria, young Viola disguises herself as a man to secure a job with the Duke Orsino, and quickly finds herself entangled in an unwelcomed love triangle. Travel back to 1983 for this fantastical performance of Shakespeare’s gender bending comedy of mistaken identity and unrequited love. Tickets are as free as sunshine!
