A famous Shakespearean comedy will be retold by a Worle drama society.
The Worle Operatic and Drama Society (WODS) will be launching their 2019 season with Twelfth Night next month.
William Shakespeare’s story of unrequited love, lost souls, mistaken identity, lust and laughter will amuse audiences at one of the town’s smallest theatres.
WODS’ talented members will take on the challenge of playing unforgettable characters including Sir Toby Belch, Malvolio and Feste as they head for the land of Illyriafor.
The company are thrilled to be returning in 2019 with their second community project after the runaway success of last year’s A Midsummer Nights Dream at the Tropicana’s Theatre In The Bay.
They will be taking up residency in one of Weston’s ‘hidden gems’, the Theatre In The Hut.
One cast member, Yvonne, said: “It has always been on my bucket list to do Shakespeare but I never thought it could be such fun.
