SYNOPSIS: Separated from her brother after a storm at sea, Violet — a young lioness, must brave an unknown country all alone. Disguised as a boy, she joins up with a preposterous peacock on a quest to claim the attentions of the most graceful gazelle in town. Soon, Violet is torn between multiple masters, and her adventure takes a turn for the absurd. Our heroine becomes entangled in the clownish antics of a wacky warthog and his featherbrained dodo sidekick. Travel to the weird and wonderful land of Illyria in a magical comedy loaded with music, monkeys, and mayhem.
This hilarious, family-friendly, one-hour show is a re-imagining of Shakespeare’s 12th Night told through animals, humor and music. Come out and celebrate our community while supporting our MVPS Arts program.
