Himmel Park Amphitheater, and two encore performances will be held at

A quick "Twelfth Night" summary: 

Viola and Sebastian are look alike twins, separated by a shipwreck.
Viola lands in Illyria, where she disguises herself like her brother and
goes into the service of the Duke Orsino. Orsino sends her to help him
woo the Lady Olivia, who doesn't want the Duke, but finds that she likes
the new messenger the Duke's sending. Then, of course, Viola's brother
shows up, and merry hell breaks loose. Meanwhile, Olivia's uncle and his
cohorts are trying to find some way to get back at Olivia's officious
majordomo, Malvolio

This first production will be produced and directed by Michael Givens.
Michael was the Artistic Director of the Tucson Community Theatre for 10
years, during which time he produced over 40 productions and directed
17.  Some of his favorite shows include:  “Much Ado About Nothing”,
“Romeo & Juliet”, Lion in Winter”, “A Streetcar Named Desire”
and “The Fantasticks”.
