"Viola" disguises herself as a boy and goes to work at the home of "Duke Orsino," with whom she falls in love, in "The Twelfth Night," performed at Ellsworth High School last Thursday through Saturday. The Shakespeare comedy of mistaken identities was brought forward to the 1970s, featuring '70s attire and a full disco soundtrack from that decade. Molly Schneider-Adams portrayed Viola and Jonah Conway had the role of The Duke. The production was in dress rehearsal on the EHS stage Tuesday.1 / 3

Some not-so-subtle portrayals added to the laughs in "The Twelfth Night," as presented at Ellsworth High School. Shakespeare's comedy of mistaken identities featured a lot of confusion, twists and turns, plus subplots involving some practical jokes.
