Sehome Drama presented its spring production William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night to large audiences looking for a slapstick Elizabethan romp. The play was set on a beach boardwalk in the mid-1970s and featured brightly-colored costumes and 1970s jams. The show tells the story of the shipwrecked twins Viola and Sebastian as they try to navigate the trials of mistaken identity and various love-triangles in the seaside town of Illyria.
The cast & crew worked together to create the boardwalk beach scene which included floor to ceiling 1970s signs complete with Shakespearean puns. Other parts of the set included a large crashed ship mast, a ship's dungeon made from ropes, a massive light-up Illyria sign and a large raised boardwalk which spanned the stage.
The cast included the musical group "Feste and the Bards" which performed versions of popular 1970s music between scenes and featured great performances by the students in SHS Drama. Audiences laughed loudly and were overjoyed with the performance of Twelfth Night.
