EUREKA – The Eureka College Theatre Department will continue its season with the Shakespearian comedy, “Twelfth Night” at 7:30 p.m. November 15-16 and at 2 p.m. on November 17.
The show, which will take place inside Pritchard Theatre at the Eureka College campus, will be directed by EC theater professor Holly Rocke.
The comedy by William Shakespeare centers on the misadventure of Violia as she disguises herself as a man. The play has been trimmed down to an hour, in order to be accessible for the whole family.
The cast is composed of students enrolled in an Advanced Theatre Production Course, and the performances will be the culmination of their work.
The cast includes junior Olivia Roach of Morton as Sebastian, senior Sterling Wynn of Channohon as Duke Orsino and Sir Toby Belch, senior Caitlin Cornwell of Pekin as Malvolio and Antonio, senior Kelsey Degardin as Violia, senior Paul Sims of Pekin as Sir Andrew, junior McKinnon Anderson of Mount Carmel as Olivia, senior Emma Tatro of Strawn, and senior Annaliese Springer of Eureka as Feste and Maria.
Admission will be on a donation basis, with proceeds going to support the Theatre’s upcoming trip to Scotland. For reservations, call the box office at 467-6363 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Located in Eureka, Illinois, and chartered in 1855, Eureka College cultivated excellence in learning, service and leadership while providing students uniquely personalized and custom educational opportunities.
Originally founded by abolitionist members of Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Eureka College holds the unique distinction of being the first college in Illinois and only the third in the nation to admit men and women on an equal basis. The College, which is located on nearly 70 wooded acres in central Illinois is the smallest of only 23 colleges and universities to ever award a bachelor’s degree to a future President of the United States.
