SFU Community Enjoys Twelfth Night Performances


The Fine Arts Program recently presented “Twelfth Night” in JFK Auditorium, with multiple showings Nov. 10-13.

Written by William Shakespeare, “Twelfth Night” is a romantic comedy. The production was adapted by Assistant Professor of Theatre Lance Mekeel and senior English major Scott Riner for the shows at SFU.

Longtime Fine Arts faculty member Bonnie Resinski designed and crafted the characters’ costumes.

“My basic goal is to work with clothes to transform the actor into a character,” said Resinski. “Then the character can transport the audience through time and space using theatre.”

Stage manager Tristan Hummel enjoyed assisting Mekeel in various production responsibilities.

“My favorite part of this production was seeing everything come together,” said Hummel. “Watching everyone enjoy running the show and making their characters their own was great.”

The cast and crew numbered 23 students and demonstrated the growth and popularity of the fine arts at the University.

“Everyone is so friendly to newcomers and they don’t exclude anyone,” said Hummel. “It’s a nice community to get into, which is why I’m coming back next year.”

The Fine Arts Program’s next on-campus show will be a performance of “Grease” on March 29-31.
