Twelfth Night hits theatres this weekend!

By: Christi Rutledge

On March 10, 2012, at 12:45 p.m. local time, Des McAnuff’s production of Twelfth Night will hit the big screen at Cineplex Theatres! I know that I’m not alone when I say that Twelfth Night was one of my favourite productions last season – and one of the best things about capturing it on film is that we get to share the magic of Shakespeare and Stratford to an increasingly wide audience. So, if you live in Coquitlam, British Columbia, and can’t make it to Stratford each year, you can still experience our productions from the comfort of your home town!

If you’re a Festival fan, we have a special deal just for you! When you go to the theatre to see Twelfth Night, present this coupon at the front desk and save a few dollars on your ticket (maybe buy some popcorn with your extra cash). If you love this production as much as I do, you might want to see the encore screening on March 21 at 7 p.m.

Can’t make it to the theatre on either of those dates? No worries – the Twelfth Night DVD will be available through our Theatre Store on May 1, 2012. You can pre-order a copy today!

Read more about the film version of Des McAnuff’s Twelfth Night here!

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at participating theatre box offices and online at www.cineplex.com/events – or through the Cineplex mobile site, m.cineplex.com.

Psssst, we’ll be giving away tickets to Twelfth Night all week on Twitter (use them at any participating theatre). Follow us @stratfest and @stratfestchris for a chance to win!
