The American Shakespeare Center will present the comedy Twelfth Night on Tuesday, March 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Iowa Wesleyan College Chapel Auditorium. This is a free performance open to the public, writes Theresa Rose for KILJ.

“This is ‘fun Shakespeare’—-light, witty, and fast-paced; a play full of fools, knaves, clowns, scoundrels, cross-dressing tricksters, nerds in love, and a crusty drunken uncle named—-we kid you not—Sir Toby Belch,” said Dr. Jeff Martinek, professor of English at Iowa Wesleyan. “If you have never seen Shakespeare performed live or have doubts about it being your cup of tea, we urge you to give this one a try.”

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and there will be live acoustic music and a pre-show speech by the cast in the half-hour prior to the performance.
