Shakespeare's Twelfth Night Comes to MHC

The American debut of an Oxford University Dramatic Society (OUDS) production of William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, or What You Will will be presented in Mary Woolley Hall's Chapin Auditorium September 12 and 13 at 8 pm and September 14 and 15 at 2 pm and 8 pm. The event, sponsored by Mount Holyoke and the Massachusetts International Festival of the Arts (MIFA), is directed by Alex Clifton. On Thursday, September 12, there will be a pre-event lecture by noted British theatre producer Thelma Holt, an Oxford don and past chair of the British Arts Council. Her talk, titled "Internationalism in the Theatre," will be held in the New York Room in Mary Woolley Hall at 6:30 pm. Proceeds from the play will benefit MHC's study abroad program. The performances are free for MHC students with an ID. Tickets are $15 for general audiences and $8 for students and seniors. Call x2406 for tickets and information.

Founded in 1885 by Alec MacKinnon on the premise that the society would be "free from club and class jealousies" and with the intention of being different from other clubs that had acquired a bad name for their less than orderly behavior, the society today is responsible for the most exciting and experimental theatre in Oxford. Among its distinguished productions was the 1966 staging of Dr. Faustus starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, supported by a company of undergraduate actors. Past members and directors include John Gielgud, George Divine, Edith Evans, Vivien Leigh, Kenneth Tynan, Caryl Churchill, and Dudley Moore. OUDS provides strong support for budding new writers, as well as reviving classic texts, presenting fully staged productions at Oxford University. The society tours nationally and internationally. Related programs will be held at the Renaissance Center at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Call 577-3603 for details.
