Lions in Illyria

Feb. 8 - Feb. 16, 2020

Family Matinee Series Presents

Giraffes are gentlemen, aardvarks are card sharks, and animals rule the world in this retelling of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. When young lioness Violet is separated from her twin brother by a storm at sea, she must find her way alone in an unknown country. Disguised as a boy, she finds work helping a preposterous peacock win the love of the most graceful gazelle in town, but it's not long before Violet is torn between multiple masters and the whole menagerie is tangled in matters of the heart. Travel to the weird and wonderful land of Illyria in this magical, clever comedy. Best for ages 8+ years.
