Shake on the Lake's Twelfth Night

Outdoor live theater production.

July 30, 2016 @ 5:30pm - Darien Lake State Park, Darien Center

July 31, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - Marine Park, Point Breeze

Shake on the Lake, Genesee Valley’s Shakespeare Festival, celebrates its fifth season by co-producing Twelfth Night with the Arkansas
Shakespeare Theatre. This year’s production will first be staged in Arkansas and then travel 1,100 miles to tour the Genesee Valley to continue its run, before heading back to Arkansas for more touring in the fall.

Twelfth Night is Shake on the Lake’s first co-production. Shows produced in this way share resources including concept designs, set, costumes, and some of the artists, including the director. Shake on the Lake plans on producing twelve nights of Twelfth Night during the course of the tour, including four at the main stage on Silver Lake. For the second year, Shake on the Lake will tour. This year
locations are in Wyoming, Livingston, Erie, Genesee, and Orleans Counties.

There will be food and drinks available for purchase during the event.

Come early to see the artists, hear the music of local musicians and stay for an amazing outdoor production of Twelfth Night.


This production is offered free of charge by GO ART!, the Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council.
