The Gingerbread Players Of Saint Luke’s Church To Present Twelfth Night
The Gingerbread Players of Saint Luke’s Church will launch their 42nd season with Twelfth Night, or What You Will, opening on November 5. Mischief, mirth and merriment abound in Shakespeare’s nimble comedy of misplaced alliances, mistaken identity and general misunderstanding. The Gingerbread Players’ cast blends old favorites James Chamberlain (Feste), Andrew Dinan (Malvolio), Lori Feren (Olivia), David Friedman (Sir Toby Belch), Louise Guinther (Viola) and Eric Leeb (Fabian) with exciting newcomers, including Kenneth Eckert (Sir Andrew Aguecheek) and Guy Ventoliere (Orsino). The troupe has made something of a specialty of Shakespeare, having produced seven of the Bard’s plays since first venturing into Shakespearean waters in 2000.
Twelfth Night runs for four performances only starting Saturday, November 5, at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, November 6, at 2:30 p.m., Saturday, November 12, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, November 13, at 2:30 p.m. at Saint Luke’s Church, 85 Greenway South in Forest Hills, between Ascan Avenue and Harrow Street, a short walk from the Continental Avenue subway station. The troupe’s trademark gingerbread will be on sale at intermission. The suggested donation is $12, with a discount rate of $10 for groups of six or more.
