Bard in the Yard - A Modern Take on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night
presented in The Orion Amphitheater's Artist Meadow
On Friday, September 23, 2022, Alabama A&M’s new Shakespeare Troupe, “The Bulldog Bards” will present “Bard in the Yard - A Modern Take on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night” at The Orion Amphitheater’s Artist Meadow.
This 45-minute production of Twelfth Night is interactive and offers audiences a fresh, modern adaptation of Shakspeare’s romantic comedy featuring original music created by AAMU Communications Media Performance Major Senior, Tariq White (who also performs as Orsino in the production).
In Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night , twins Sebastian and Viola are separated by a storm at sea on the coast of Illyria (in AAMU’s production, The Illyria is a destination hotel). They encounter and fall in love with Orsino and Olivia. All in all, Twelfth Night is a play that demonstrates how love can make us all go crazy!
This event is free and family-friendly.
