|“Twelfth Night” will be shown in September during the Southern California Shakespeare Festival.|
The campus community is encouraged to reserve tickets for the annual Southern California Shakespeare Festival at Cal Poly Pomona. William Shakespeare's popular and enticing Twelfth Night, will run each weekend during the month of September.
Twelfth Night is a brilliant story of both romance and comedy about a brave young girl's adventures in a new land after being shipwrecked and losing her twin brother. It is one of Shakespeare's most loved and performed plays.
Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. in the university's Studio Theatre on Sept. 5-6, 12-13, 19-20 and 26-27, with a special gala on Sept. 6.
The mission of the Shakespeare Festival is to establish a classical, professional repertory theatre company, dedicated to nurturing artists, student-artists and enriching the diverse community of the Inland Empire.
Every year, professional actors from the Actors' Equity Association work with students from the university's Theatre Department to put on these performances. This year six guest actors and 13 student actors make up the cast. Josh Machamer, who has extensive college and professional directing credits, as well as experience within the television and film industry, will direct. Returning professional actors include Peter Wittrock, Baron Kelly and Katrina Wolfson.
General admission tickets are $15. Tickets are $12 for students, staff and faculty with valid Bronco ID and for seniors. Tickets can be purchased at www.class.cpp.edu/th/scsf.
