Sandy Spring Friends School Upper School play production class, along with the stagecraft class, is set to truly captivate audiences with their own creative interpretation of Shakespeare's loveable comedy, Twelfth Night. The production runs November 17, 18 and 19 at 7:15 pm in the SSFS Performing Arts Center, and is directed by Julie Borsetti. The talented cast will transport audiences to the beautiful island of Illyria, where everything is turned upside down and nothing is what it seems. Viola loves Orsino, who thinks he loves Olivia. Olivia thinks she loves Cesario who is really Viola, dressed as a man. The world of the play is further populated and enhanced by the ridiculous longings of the self-righteous Malvolio, the jovial interjections of Sir Toby Belch, the impossible conquests of the cowardly night, Sir Andrew Aguecheeck, and more. Our production is set in the roaring twenties and features dance and song; it is full of many twists and turns and gender-bending surprises. You won't be able to keep yourself from falling in love with these foolish and funny characters as they sing, dance, and joust their way to the madcap finale. There is a suggested donation of $10, and the play is free for students. You won't want to miss this hilarious production!
Students should come to school in regular clothing for a normal morning of classes and may change into costumes before the afternoon parade. See the note from Brenda Crawley in the newsletter about making sure costumes are appropriate for all our LS students in grades PK3-5. In the afternoon, the Lower School has a costume parade that begins promptly at 2:30 pm, followed by our annual Autumn Social and dance party at 2:45. Parents are cordially invited to participate in costume, to watch, or to photograph!
