Colonial Theater stages Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" in Westerly
Shakespeare is always a worthy investment. Watching Shakespeare in a beautiful park on a midsummer's night is an even better investment — and watching Shakespeare in Westerly's Wilcox Park is free. Audiences are invited to Colonial Theater's 27th season of its Shakespeare festival, where, this year, the theater will be performing Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night, or What You Will," a comedy, as Colonial Theater's press release phrases it, of "mistaken identity, the very amusing trials of love, and a topsy-turvy world in mythical Illyria."
Longtime Colonial Theater actors Marion Markham and Paul Romero will be playing the roles of Maria and Sir Toby Belch, respectively, in this summer's production. Rhode Island native Peter Tedeschi will play Malvolio, and Richard Herron, another veteran of the Colonial, will appear as Feste.
So pull out the blankets and beach chairs, and cozy up under the stars for Shakespeare in the park.
The Colonial Theater's "Twelfth Night," Wilcox Park, Broad Street, Westerly; runs through August 13; 8 p.m. nightly, but no performances on Mondays; free, donations accepted; www.thecolonialtheater.org.
