UIS’ Twelfth Night Goes Live This Friday

A production originally slated for last year will premiere in just a few days.

Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night has a plot so familiar, you probably don’t realize how much it has been adapted into other works, contemporary and classic.

University of Illinois Springfield Department of Theatre’s Production will blend both live and prerecorded elements. The show will be performed live (virtually) and that performance will be recorded and played back for the subsequent nights.

Director Missy Thibodeaux-Thompson discussed that and more on Let’s Talk Arts and Entertainment.
