Written by William Shakespeare in 1623, Twelfth Night is a poetic comedy that Westosha Central has put it's own spin on. The show is full of Shakespearean dialect, supported by deliciously dramatic acting. The difficult language poses a challenge that brought out the best of our cast, and the difficulties of a show during COVID-19 brought out the best of our crew.
The show stars Noah Dufek, Madison Sheen, Alena Ekornas, Mason Dreyer, Kiley Kennedy, Aly Wolf, Max Galton and Stephanie Mickelson, and was undoubtedly be a hilarious return of Westosha Central Drama.

"Covid-19 caused the makeup and hair team many problems. A interesting situation I never thought I'd be in, was teaching boys how to put on eyeliner. I remember one of the actors started tearing up out of frustration, so us girls taught him how to look up and fan his eyes so the makeup wouldn't run. We had taught them how to do their makeup to social distance better. Makeup and hair trouble shooted how we were supposed to give the characters a makeup look while they also wore masks. So, why not paint on the masks with the actor's makeup? This took us weeks to customize every cast members mask to their face. We awkwardly did this by tracing their facial features while they wore the mask for the best accuracy."
