A Tale of Love, Revenge, and Mistaken Identity,  “Love’s night is noon” Twelfth Night, Act Three, Scene One.

Venture Shakespeare will present its inaugural professional production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, from June 13th-15th at the Kenilworth Center, Asheville, NC.

Venture Shakespeare was founded in 2018 by Kirstin Daniel to bring professional Shakespeare to Asheville and foster the next generation of artists with its education programs through research, collaboration, and creation. Founding Artistic Director Kirstin Daniel says, “Having started a year ago with a month-long program for students ages 18-22, I am thrilled to be bridging my two artistic worlds: my wonderfully generous colleagues, and my eager, inspiring students. This is just the beginning!”

This summer Venture Shakespeare will bring in artists from around the world to create a performance that will not only delight the imagination, but change the way the audience sees themselves and each other. It is a story where all the characters are challenging their class, gender norms, and the system they were born into.

Actor Welland Scripps said “This production explores Twelfth Night’sthemes of identity – how we form it, our secrets and why we share them, and our quest of self-discovery.” Actor Liesl Jensen said “Everyone in the ensemble is bringing a really new, exciting energy to all of the characters. We can’t wait to share it with our audiences.”

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
