For the first time in more than a decade, Chickasaw Community Theatre performs the work of Western canon’s most storied playwright with Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” onstage Feb. 27 through March 8. The comedy takes place at the Lola Phillips Playhouse at 801 Iroquois St.

Directed by Bill Watts, this staging features Renaissance era music by the Phoenix Quartet along with period attire. Written for the close of the Christmas season, the gender-bending comedy drew inspiration for its riotous plot from “The Deceived Ones,” penned by an Italian collective. In turn, it has been the basis for a 1996 film, a Disney version based around motorsports and the 2006 film “She’s the Man.”

Friday and Saturday curtain is 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.

Admission is $15, $12 for seniors and students. Cash and local checks only at the box office. Credit card purchases are available via the website.
