Armed with a warm blanket and a picnic basket of goodies, watching the extremely talented cast of the Modicum Theatre company perform Shakespeare's romantic comedy The Twelfth Night was a fabulous way to spend a summer's evening.

Of course, Shakespeare's play, filled with comedic twists and turns and extravagant drama, is a timeless classic, but performing it with such skill is no mean feat. As Malvolio says "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em", and whichever catagory, the young Modicum actors fall into they all played their parts brilliantly.

Aaron O'Neil and Beck Thorman

Under the directorship of Leigh Fitzpatrick, Abbey McCaughan was brilliant as the heroine and protagonist Viola. Hannah Bardsley was terrific as the grief-stricken Olivia who was wooed by many but ultimately found love with Sebastian played by Aaron O'Neil.

Mike Casas as Sir Toby and Sean Wcislo as Sir Andrew

Mike Casas as Sir Toby, Sean Wcislo as Sir Andrew and Courtney Maldo as Maria made a comical trio as they tormented the prudish house steward Malvolio played by Elizabeth Willow Humphreys. Jonathon Maddocks played the aristocratic Duke Orsino and Sarah Lewis was the foolish Feste. The cast was rounded out by Ryan Partridge playing the Captain and Fabian and Beck Thorman as Antonio.

There is something extra fun about a Shakespeare comedy being performed outside and Murdoch University's outdoor amphitheatre was the perfect setting for this play on a beautiful summer's evening.
