Bard in the Valley is presenting William Shakespeare‘s Twelfth Night at two outdoor venues in Langley in August.

This is the troupes’ third season and the play promises lots of action and fun, with mistaken identities, sword fights and complicated love interests. Twelfth Night is directed by June Ainsworth and Jacq Ainsworth.

Producer Diane Gendron said, “Everyone is invited to bring friends and the whole family to this exciting, free, outdoor theatrical event. It has been most gratifying to see so many children in the audience in our first two seasons. We look forward to giving even more people of all ages the opportunity to share in this Shakespearian experience this season. Because admission is free, our performances are accessible to people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend a Shakespearian play.”

The audience is invited to bring a blanket, lawn chairs and a picnic, or to pick up dinner at the Rotary concession that will be onsite in Douglas Park.

Admission to the event is free but donations will be welcome to help cover production costs.

The show’s co-director, June Ainsworth said, “Twelfth Night is my favourite Shakespearian comedy and I have been privileged to work with our many talented actors to bring this delightful play to the stage. The wonderful imagination of the set decorators and seamstresses complete the scene to ensure this year’s production is a fulfilling kaleidoscope of entertainment.”

Show dates are August 9 to 11 at 7 p.m. and August 12 at 2 p.m. and August 16 to 18 at 7 p.m. and August 19 at 2 p.m. on the outdoor Spirit Square Stage in Douglas Park in Langley City. It will also play August 25 at 6 p.m. and August 26 at 2 p.m. during the International Festival in Willoughby Park adjacent to the Langley Events Centre in the Township of Langley.

The production is made possible with the support of the City of Langley, the Township of Langley, the Rotary Club of Langley, the Langley Times, Coast Capital Savings, Waterstone Law Group, 24/7 Security, Deloitte, and News 1130.

Bard in the Valley’s Artistic Director and co-producer for Twelfth Night, Allan Thain said, “The Bard in the Valley Society is dedicated to the concept of making these performances both affordable and available to wide audience. We believe in “One Goal – One Passion – Shakespeare For Everyone.”
