News   A Rain-Filled Twelfth Night Pours Over Trinity Rep, Starting Jan. 29
 
The Trinity Repertory Theatre production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, featuring Cherie Corinne Rice, Joe Wilson, Jr. and Annie Wordon, begins performances Jan. 29.

Brian McEleney stages the production that will run through March 7 in Providence. McEleney also appears as Malvolio.

In addition to Rice (Viola/Sebastian), Wilson, Jr. (Orsino) and Wordon (Olivia), the Twelfth Night company features Fred Sullivan, Jr. (Sir Toby Belch), Stephen Thorne (Sir Andrew Aguecheek), Anne Scurria (Maria), Stephen Berenson (Feste) and Mauro Hantman (Fabian), as well as Christopher Berry, Jamey Grisham and Rich Williams.

Twelfth Night has set designs by Eugene Lee, costume design by resident designer William Lane, lighting design by John Ambrosone, sound design by Peter Sasha Hurowitz and musical direction by Jamey Grisham.

"In my conversations with Eugene Lee, who’s designed the set, we talked about how to best create the world of the play, which takes place during this big Twelfth Night celebration," McEleney said in a statement. "His initial idea was to set the action in an elite members-only gentleman’s club - and that’s what he’s created onstage in great detail. Of course as Shakespeare says in the play, '…the rain it raineth every day,' so there’s going to be a lot of water involved as well!"

Tickets to Twelfth Night at Trinity Rep, 201 Washington Street in Providence, RI, are available by calling (401) 351-4242. For more information visit www.trinityrep.com.
