Story Theater Company’s 2019 teen show is William Shakespeare’s comedy, Twelfth Night:
When Viola and Sebastian are shipwrecked on the island of Illyria, Viola finds herself alone without her brother or the life that she knew. She decides she must disguise herself as a man in order to gain employment with Orsino, Duke of Illyria. The Duke is madly in love with Olivia, who wants nothing to do with him. When Orsino tasks Viola with delivering his messages of love to Olivia, Shakespeare’s brilliant comedy truly begins. Disguises, clowns, tricksters, and mistaken identities intertwine in a romantic comedy that, of course, concludes in the most unexpected manner for the characters, and in the most delightful for the audience.

Story Theater Company’s annual teen show is an intensive experience wherein the participants form a theater company to create a production. With the guidance of adult directors, a technical director, and a design mentor, the teens not only act in the show, but are also responsible for all sets, costumes, props, lights, dramaturgy, music, and stage management.
