The Priest (Will Williams, center) pronounces matrimony on Olivia (Heather Atkinson) and Sebastian (Scot Randolph) in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Aug 26-28.e in the househ

Bring a lawn chair and enjoy this open air performance, staged by and featuring your South Park friends and neighbors.  Produced by Phyllis Tonne and Galen Wilson. Directed by Susan Robert.
