Junior high programs unite to perform ‘Twelfth Night’

By From page A11 | January 24, 2014

Emerson and Da Vinci junior high school’s drama program presents Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night.”

Performances will be held at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31, and 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, in the multipurpose room at Emerson Junior High, 2121 Calavaras Ave. Tickets are free for students under the age of 18, and $5 for adults. All proceeds support the Emerson/Da Vinci drama program.

This comedy of mistaken identity and unrequited love takes place in an Illyria of the near future, and follows Viola, a shipwrecked young woman in a strange land, who takes on the appearance of the brother she thinks is dead.

Viola falls in love with Duke Orsino, a brooding young man in love with the depressed Countess Olivia, who mourns her recently deceased brother. The show has a little something for everyone: drama, slapstick comedy, and singing and dancing.
