The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University presents the second production of the fall season, William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Performances run from Nov. 21-24 in the Browning Mainstage Theatre in The Webster University Loretto-Hilton Center.

Synopsis: Viola has been shipwrecked in a violent storm off the coast of Illyria; in the process she has lost her twin brother, Sebastian. She disguises herself as a boy and assumes the name Cesario for protection. Thus disguised, Viola enters the world of Twelfth Night. This cross-dressing, ship-wreck surviving, poetry-loving girl finds herself at the center of a not-so-average love triangle.

Conservatory of Theatre Arts

Part of Webster University's Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts, the Conservatory of Theatre Arts is a professional training program for acting, musical theatre, directing, theatre studies and dramaturgy, design, technical theatre and stage management. It has been training theatre students for the professional world for over half a century.

The Conservatory selects students through auditions and theatre festivals nationwide, and also hosts auditions on campus. All candidates for admission must complete the audition/portfolio review process to be considered.

One of the distinguishing elements of Webster's Conservatory is its integrated association with professional theatre companies, two of which are located on campus: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis and Opera Theatre of Saint Louis. Webster also enjoys a one of a kind association with St. Louis professional theatre organizations including, The MunyVariety: the Children's Charity, and Shakespeare Festival of St. Louis.
