Husson Theater present Twelfth Night'

Written by DJ Samuelian

BANGOR - This past weekend, Husson University Theater put on 'Twelfth Night,' directed by Christy Bruton. One of Shakespeare's comedies, 'Twelfth Night' centers around a shipwrecked woman named Viola (played by Nichole Sparlin) as she takes on the identity of Cesario so that she can work for Duke Orsino (played by Nick Kovarik). She has a twin brother who she believes died in the shipwreck. What follows is a twisted web of deception, mistaken identity and love.

The acting in this production is spot on. Sparlin does a fantastic job as the central character Viola. She is funny when she needs to be but also has no problem pulling off the slightly more serious moments. As the plot thickens and the misunderstandings add up, she plays Viola with a believable hint of confused panic. Kimberlee Lewis plays the character of Oliva, a wealthy woman who falls in love with who she believes to be Cesario. Her moments of frustration with Sir Toby (played by Kody Vaghan) are some of the funniest moments.
