Northeast Stage presents “Twelfe Night” at Shakespeare in the Park in Greenport’s Mitchell Park

August 7, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - August 9, 2015 @ 7:00 pm

Twelfe Night

Twelfth Night is a festival, in some branches of Christianity marking the coming of the Epiphany. Different traditions mark the date of Twelfth Night on either 5th January or 6th January; the Church of England, Mother Church of Anglican Communion, celebrates Twelfth Night on the 5th and “refers to the night before Epiphany, the day when the nativity story tells us that the three wise men visited the infant Jesus.”

In Western Church traditions the Twelfth Night concludes the Twelve Days of Christmas, although in others the Twelfth Night can precede the Twelfth Day. In 567 the Council of Tours proclaimed that the entire period between Christmas and Epiphany should be considered part of the celebration, creating what became known as the twelve days of Christmas, or what the English called Christmastide. On the last of the twelve days, called Twelfth Night, various cultures developed a wide range of additional special festivities.

This production will be staged under the stars on Aug. 7, 8 & 9 at 7 p.m. in Mitchell Park. Free admission. Rain Location: Greenport High School Auditorium
