  • February 25, 2016 Twelfth Night by William Peace Theatre William Peace Theatre Company presents Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" directed by Dr. Wade Newhouse, Feb. 25-28, 2016. TICKETS: $15 Adult, $10 Faculty/Staff/Alumni, $5 Student REGISTER HERE William Peace Theatre presents William Shakespeare’s timeless comedy February 25 - 28 in Leggett Theatre on the campus of William Peace University.  Drawing inspiration from the romantic comedies of influential filmmaker John Hughes, the show’s design captures the exuberant teen romance of the 1980’s. Twins Viola and Sebastian have been separated from each other in a shipwreck along the coast of Illyria.  Disguising herself as a boy named Cesario, she enters the employ of Duke Orsino, who pines after the Lady Olivia.  As Orsino sends her to deliver messages of love to Olivia, she falls for him and Olivia falls for her.  Meanwhile, Olivia’s uncle, Sir Toby Belch, and a dimwitted knight named Sir Andrew Aguecheek, accompanied by various servants and clowns cause drunken mayhem and prank Olivia’s steward, Malvolio, into believing she is in love with him. Dr. Wade Newhouse directs this production.  At William Peace University he currently serves as the Interim Program Coordinator for Theatre and Musical Theatre, and teaches such courses as Composition, Children’s Literature, Southern Literature, Storytelling for Simulation, Critical Approaches to Film, and American Hauntings.  He has published articles and book chapters on a wide variety of authors, including Sir Walter Scott, Ambrose Bierce, William Faulkner, and Neil Gaiman.  He is the Assistant Director of Raleigh’s Village Idiots and has performed with that improvisational comedy troupe for over ten years.  As an actor, Dr. Newhouse has often appeared on the Peace stage, playing such roles as Nick Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Herr Schultz in Cabaret, the Narrator/Mysterious Man in Into the Woods, and the Chairman in The Mystery of Edwin Drood.  Dr. Newhouse has also performed with Bare Theatre, hiSTORYstage, and Forest Moon Theater. view Event
