The University of Maine School of Performing Arts will present an on-demand virtual production of Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” filmed in the Lyle E. Littlefield Ornamentals Trial Garden on the UMaine campus and streaming through Sunday, May 9.

“Twelfth Night,” one of Shakespeare’s best-known romantic comedies, centers on twins Viola and Sebastian, separated by a shipwreck and each presuming the other drowned. Viola disguises herself as a man and must woo Olivia on behalf of Duke Orsino. Olivia rejects Orsino and falls in love with Cesario, but ends up marrying Sebastian.

Katie Brayson of Orono, a psychology and theatre double major who plays Viola, says she came to love and appreciate Shakespeare for not only his dramatics, but the unexpected moments of comedy — especially physical comedy — that “give this show its charm.”
