Casting Announced for Twelfth Night at Trinity Rep

News   Casting Announced for Twelfth Night at Trinity Rep Cherie Corinne Rice, Joe Wilson, Jr. and Annie Wordon will lead the cast of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night for the Trinity Repertory Theatre.

Brian McEleney will helm the production that opens Jan. 29 and will run through March 7 in Providence. McEleney will also appear in the production as Malvolio.

In addition to Rice (Viola/Sebastian), Wilson, Jr. (Orsino) and Wordon (Olivia), Twelfth Night will also feature 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 will have 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!"
