"A marvelous take on a beloved show... [touching] lightly - yet effectively - on subjects of bullying, addictive behavior and being true to yourself while trying to love someone else, adds up to a show that kids and adults alike will adore."  –Chicago Parent
 
"Dimondís direction of this cleverly crafted script creates a world within which kids and parents alike can thoroughly revel in an hour of live theater."  –New City
 
"One of the more ambitious projects I've seen from Lifeline Theatre's KidSeries... It's lots of fun and very silly, and [it] takes care to insert lessons about friendship, love, and the importance of being oneself."  –Chicago Reader
 

Separated from her brother by a storm at sea, the young lioness Violet must brave an unknown country all alone. Disguised as a boy, she joins up with a preposterous peacock on a quest to claim the attentions of the most graceful gazelle in town. But soon Violet is torn between multiple masters and her adventure takes a turn for the absurd when she becomes entangled in the clownish antics of a wacky warthog and his featherbrained dodo sidekick. Travel to the weird and wonderful land of Illyria in a magical comedy loaded with music, monkeys, and mayhem.

Recommended for kids 5 and up. Children under 2 are not permitted.

A world premiere based on William Shakespeareís Twelfth Night
Adapted by Robert Kauzlaric
Directed by Amanda Delheimer Dimond
