About this event:

Created by Dean Mortlock

St Benedict's Church, Glastonbury

Avalon Phoenix Players’ production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at St Benedict’s Church, Glastonbury promises to be a lot of fun, and also features live musical accompaniment by an ensemble which includes members of the MSO (Mid-Somerset Orchestra).

“It’s possibly the best antidote to Brexit,” suggests the play’s director, Richard. And so, on March 29, why not come out and enjoy a wonderful evening of comedy, romantic drama, music and song, while at the same time supporting an essential local charity – Mind in Somerset.

Twelfth Night is easily one of Shakespeare’s funniest and most accessible plays. This glorious romantic comedy, where confusion over identity and gender combine with the mischievous jokes and drunken revels of an anarchic Sir Toby and his friends, create many hilarious moments.

“If the performances are half as much fun as the rehearsals you will be in for a treat.” says Richard. “We are a new local drama group with an age range from teens to mid-sixties, and with talented novices playing alongside seasoned professionals. If you are interested in joining us we still have some smaller walk-on parts available.”

The Avalon Phoenix Players would like to thank all the clubs and businesses that have supported them, included Themes, a prop hire business from Glastonbury, and Evercreech’s Drama Group.

It’s guaranteed to be a great night out, and all for the bargain price of just £7. Tickets will be available at the door at St Benedict’s Church (unless the event sales out) and also online here.
