Free, live outdoor production--bring your lawn chair! Festival 56's production is a Wild-West inspired take on Shakespeare's romantic comedy of romance, mistaken identities and practical jokes. Separated from her twin brother Sebastian in a shipwreck, Viola disguises herself as a boy, calls herself Cesario, and becomes a servant to the Duke Orsino. He sends her to woo the Countess Olivia on his behalf, but the Countess falls in love with Viola as Cesario. Meanwhile Olivia’s uncle, Sir Toby Belch, gets drunk with his friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek and they play a trick on the uptight Malvolio, Olivia’s steward, who is secretly in love with her. Eventually Viola’s twin Sebastian turns up and causes even more confusion, chaos and hijinks.
