SEQUIM — The Olympic Theatre Arts production of “A 12th Night Revelry,” which includes a staged reading of William Shakespeare's “Twelfth Night (or What You Will),” is set for 2 p.m. today (Sunday, Jan. 5).

Tickets are $10 to the production in the Gathering Hall at Olympic Theatre Arts, 414 N. Sequim Ave.

Twelfth night festivities in Shakespeare's times marked the end of winter celebrations, said Karen Hogan, producer.

“They were held in a hall, often included a production of a play and celebrated a world turned upside-down where the Lord becomes a pauper and a pauper became a Lord,” she added.

Said Heidi Hansen, vice chairwoman of Olympic Theatre Arts: “We encourage everyone to come dressed as their favorite lord or lady, or wench or rogue.

“We want this event to transport us to a time when theater was as much a part of everyday life as television is to us today.”
