2018 Season



















Twelfth Night

Often deemed Shakespeare’s comedic masterpiece, Twelfth Night weaves together our favorite elements into one multifaceted world. A shipwreck, a sad clown, a woman disguised as a man, and unrequited love come together in the midst of a post-holiday malaise. In these characters we recognize our own struggle against melancholy, which so often can make daily aggravations a little bit worse. But in the end, we find our way out and into joy once again. We look forward to sharing this catharsis with you.

Kristin Clippard, of Cincinnati, will direct Twelfth Night. Kristin holds a BFA from Wright State University and an MFA from the University of Iowa. She trained with Shakespeare & Company, Orlando Shakespeare Theatre, the former National Conservatory Theatre, and SITI Company. Selected directing credits include Loyalty and Betrayal (a community collaboration based on Julius Caesar), Landless, Collective Amnesia, and Champagne Gods. Favorite classic play projects include Imaginary Invalid, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Taming of the Shrew, Measure for Measure, Pericles, Dr. Faustus and She Stoops to Conquer. Kristin has taught, administered, acted, assisted or directed with over a dozen Shakespeare producing theatre companies and many others. She is also a playwright and enjoys developing new works with writers. Visit her website at www.kristinclippard.com
