The Rogue Community College Theater Arts department will take the stage this spring with a presentation of “Twelfth Night,” a Shakespearean comedy about love, mistaken identity and gender confusion.
“I am struck by how ‘Twelfth Night,’ which was written 400 years ago, has elements of gender identity and sexual orientation – issues that are very much in the forefront of today’s world,” said director Cil Stengel. “The jokes too, while being centuries old, are still funny today. Rehearsals have been a blast.”
The play will run three weekends, May 17 through June 1, at the Rogue Performance Hall on the Riverside Campus, 130 E. Eighth St., Medford. The cast includes RCC students and alumni, as well as community members.
Evening performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 17 through June 1. Saturday matinees will begin at 2 p.m. May 18, 25 and June 1. A pay-what-you-can preview performance will be at 7:30 p.m. May 16. Doors open 30 minutes before showtime.
Admission is $14 for adults and $7 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the door, or in advance at the RCC bookstores in both Grants Pass and Medford, or online at www.eventbrite.com (search RCC Theater). There is no presale for the May 16 preview.
