What better way to introduce your children or teens to the greatness of the Bard than with a performance from their peers?
Boston Theater Company’s Teen Touring Troupe will stage a free production of William Shakespeare’s comedy “Twelfth Night” at the Belmont Public Library this Sunday, May 8 at 2 p.m.
Join the troupe of teenage actors in Illyria, the setting of this classic comedy, where a shipwreck, a disguise, multiple mistaken identities, a clever trick, a challenge to a duel, and many mixed messages create one hilarious tale.
In a production directed by former Belmont resident Sophie Rich and features Belmont High School 9th grader Abby Mohr, the company of actors in 6th through 11th grade will perform an hour-long version of this Shakespeare masterpiece. The show is recommended for ages 8 and up.
