2012 Summer Shakespeare Festival Features Twelfth Night

Outdoor theatre festival features fun for the whole family

Capital Classics Theatre Company enters its 22nd anniversary season with the staging of Twelfth Night; or, What You Will, as part of central Connecticut's longest-running Shakespeare festival, for three weekends: July 26 through August 12, 2012.

Performances will be held on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 5:30 p.m. Capital Classics has built a reputation for making Shakespeare accessible to the thousands of fans that turn out each summer with their family and friends—and picnic baskets—to enjoy outdoor "Shakespeare under the stars" on the grounds of Saint Joseph College, West Hartford, Connecticut.

Twelfth Night; or, What You Will is a tale of mistaken identity, separated twins, deflated ego, and gender-crossing disguise, all to overcome obstacles and find "true" love. The Festival will also feature pre-show entertainment, which includes the Elizabethan Consort, dance, lectures by local professors, and more.

Twelfth Night; or, What You Will is produced by the Capital Classic Theatre Company, in partnership with the Carol Autorino Center for the Arts and Humanities.
