The Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) is delighted to host Classical Actors Ensemble during the 10th season of Shakespeare in Our Parks! Join us on the MHC lawn as we cheer, laugh, and swoon at this year’s production: “Twelfth Night, or What You Will.” This romantic comedy presents the misadventures of shipwrecked twins who separately wash ashore in a distant land, each thinking the other dead, and soon become entangled in an unrequited love triangle of noble bon vivants. Picnics, lawn chairs, sun umbrellas, and blankets are welcome. Note that the performance is in an open field with minimal shade. Please plan accordingly. Can’t make it on July 14? Check out Classical Actors Ensemble’s full calendar for other performances across the Twin Cities this summer. From Classical Actors Ensemble: “The Theater is a sacred place. It is a public forum where actors and audience gather to contemplate what it means to be human. Shakespeare and his contemporaries grappled with that question in some of the English language’s best poetry, leaving behind a canon of compelling stories with universal themes that provide invigorating challenge for actors and an awe-inspiring legacy for audiences. Classical Actors Ensemble performs the plays of the English Renaissance as they were originally intended: as popular entertainment for everyone. By demonstrating why these works of art are considered classic, we freshly prove their relevance in today’s world.”
