Shakespeare in the Schools
GableStage’s longstanding education initiative that performs 40 performances at upwards of 20 Miami-Dade public and private schools each season, makes a special stop at GableStage March 7 at 7 pm.
William Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, Twelfth Night, a story filled with romance and mistaken identities, tells the story of a shipwrecked woman navigating love and life in a new land. In this adaption, the coast of Illyria is replaced with the vast beaches of Miami, while Haiti stands powerfully in the place of our protagonist’s homeland of Messaline.
Boosted by music, poetic language and rich cultural references, this Twelfth Night carefully explores the diverse tapestry of Miami and the migrant stories that have shaped the city many call home.
The 22/23 production is Twelfth Night.
Directed by New World School of the Arts’ Eddie Brown
