Brevard College Theatre
presents 'Twelfth Night'
By Kenny Cheek
Shakespeare is to theater as oxygen is to
breathing. Some of the most well understood
and adapted plays into the theatre have always
While Shakespeare has a standard of being
hard to approach in an English classroom, it is
more exciting to watch it be portrayed by actors
and actresses with skills superior to words on
“Twelfth Night,” directed by Professor Peter
Savage, focuses around a rather entangling love
triangle that occurs after the shipwreck of Viola
and Sebastian. The triangle involves Olivia,
played by Claudia Dahlman; Viola, played by
Rose Bricker and Orsino, played by Derrick
Hill. Orsino finds himself in love with Olivia,
while Olivia falls in love with Cesario, Viola’s presentation. The costumes are appropriate to
disguise after her shipwreck and Viola falls in
love with Orsino.
While the confusing love triangle goes on,
the comedic subplots emerge and send the main
characters into different foolish situations and
strange antics. The story is meant to be a sort of
comedy mixed with dramatic reveals.
While the play is not a musical, there are
some interesting details that went into the music
involved. “It does have original music written
and composed by Daniel Ethridge. Also Feste,
played by Lisa Arrona, plays the ukulele,”
Andrea Boccanfuso said.
The set of the play is meant to have a rather
minimalistic feel to it. “The set is a chameleon—
able to morph from a beach front to a garden and
from a boardwalk to a golf course,” Boccanfuso
said. “It pulls strongly from the traditions of
the Elizabethan Theater in its minimalistic
the scenic locations.”
The point of the set is meant to be easily
accessible to modem audiences.
Because of increasing size of the program,
the theatre department has been able to present
a fourth show, giving opportunities to both
acting and design/technology students. This
advancement therefore gives us the opportunity
to have more from our beloved Theater program.
“Twelfth Night” tickets are available to
students for $5 and to the public for $10. The
dates of the play go from Thursday, April 11 to
Saturday, April 13 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, April
14, at 2:30 p.m.
While the school year is coming to a close
shortly, there is still more to look forward to
from the Theatre Program. “We still have Senior
Capstone Part 2 on Friday, April 26 at 7 p.m.!”
cuisine in Myers
By Esther and John Padgett
You may have seen the ads recently touting
Dollywood’s “Festival of Nations,” the theme
park’s annual celebration of music and food
from around the world that takes place every
spring—this year, until April 14.
But for those who happened to be on campus
last week, Brevard College featured its own
festival of international cuisine, and you didn’t
have to travel to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee or
shell out lots of money for a theme park ticket
and then still more for overpriced food.
All it required here was a meal plan.
Outside of Myers Dining Hall, a student was
chowing down on a plate of food in the early
evening sunshine on April 3, and something on
the plate looked vividly yellow, probably from
the spice saffron.
Inside the Myers lobby, flags from several
other countries were spread out on tables along
with a map of the world, and a whiteboard read
“One Campus, Many Cultures!”
It is all part of that evening’s international
dinner, set up buffet style for diners to select any
or all from at least seven entrees, in addition to
the regular fare of pizza, fast food and ample
