TFAC announces the cast for production of Twelfth Night

Published 9:04am Thursday, October 18, 2012

Tryon Fine Arts Center announces the cast for the Fall Educational Theater production of Twelfth Night.  Students from home schools, Landrum High School, Chapman High School, Polk County High School and Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy will bring this adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic comedy to schools in South Carolina District One and Polk County Oct. 29-Nov. 2 with a final performance at Tryon Fine Arts Center on Sunday, Nov. 4.
There are two casts, one for the North Carolina schools and one for the South Carolina schools.  Each cast member plays multiple roles. Playing the role of the central character, Viola, are Sara Seagle (HS) and Elizabeth Fisher (CHS). The parts of the lovesick Duke Orsino and the conniving Sir Toby Belch are played by Price Marshall (PCHS) and Alex Lecroy (CHS).  Olivia, the melancholy countess and her dimwitted suitor Sir Andrew Aguecheek  are both played by Alexa Hughes (HS) and Holly Horton (LHS).  The maligned and malevolent steward Malvolio and the Viola’s lost twin Sebastian are played by Tij D’oyen (TJCA) and Eli Jenkins (PCHS). Chelsea McCoyle (HS) and Kaitlyn Dill (LHS) complete the cast playing the clever handmaid Maria and Feste, the clown.
Both casts will unite for a one of a kind performance of this tale of love and trickery at the Tryon Fine Arts Center on Sunday, Nov. 4 at 3p.m. The tour is currently scheduled for 11 performances presented free of charge to the schools, with generous support from the Duke Energy Foundation.
