BSF (Bath, Maine) will present Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” outdoors in City Park on Saturdays and Sundays from July 20 through Aug. 4. The “curtain” rises at 7 p.m. The performances are presented in conjunction with the Patten Free Library.
Some consider “Twelfth Night” to be Shakespeare’s greatest comedy. It is the ultimate comedy of mistaken identity, in which a girl disguises herself as a man to be near the Count she adores, only to be pursued by the woman he loves — and whom he has asked her to woo on his behalf. It is a perfect outing for families, with its outrageous story and unforgettable characters. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students and senior citizens, and $5 for children younger than 5. In the event of rain, the show will go on at Bath Dance Works, 72 Front St., Bath. For details on weather, visit bathshakespeare.org.
