MURFREESBORO (AP) — A visiting quintet of actors from the London Stage will perform Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” at Middle Tennessee State University through Friday.
The visit is part of a weeklong educational residency by the troupe, founded by actor Patrick Stewart, one of the oldest established touring Shakespeare theater companies in the world. While on campus, members of the group do classroom workshops, onstage demonstrations and text readings and have informal meetings with students.
Each performance at the school’s Tucker Theatre will be full length, with few or no cuts. The actors will have double and triple roles.
