Twelfth Night is one of the finest romantic comedies by William Shakespeare. The play centers around twins Viola and Sebastian, who have been separated by a shipwreck and each believes the other to have perished. Viola (disguised as Cesario, a young man), falls for the Duke Orsino, who in turn is in love with the Countess Olivia. Olivia then falls for the disguised Viola, thinking she is a man. Hilarity ensues!

Twelfth Night includes Haneen Arafat Murphy of South Orange in the role of Maria; Derek Egidio of Columbia in the roles of Feste and Valentine; Janice Kildea of Long Valley in the roles of Fabia and Curio; Allegra Mroz of Landing in the role of Olivia; Hawkins Davis Gardow of in the role of Antonio; Garrett Gallinot (right) of Toms River in the role of Duke Orsino; Jim Quickstad in the role of Sir Andrew Aguecheek; Christine Talarico of Denville in the role of Viola/Cesario; Michael Yoder of Bedminster in the roles of Sea Captain and Priest; Keith Hoovler of Landing in the role of Sir Toby Belch; Sean Runnette of Denville in the role of Malvolio; Eric Craft of Bernardsville in the role of Sebastian; and Amie Quickstad of Berkeley Heights in the roles of Servant and Soldier.
