The acclaimed Synetic Theater has stunned and impressed audiences and critics alike with their wordless productions of Shakespeare's works, which include the award-winning Hamlet, Othello, Romeo and Juliet and others. Now an intriguing Twelfth Night, this one set in the 1920s, joins their "Silent Shakespeare" repertoire. Synetic co-founders Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili direct and star in the Bard's beloved comic tale. Twelfth Night tells the tale of fraternal twins Viola and Sebastian, separated in a strange new land. Having survived a shipwreck and believing her brother Sebastian has been lost, Viola falls hopelessly in love with Duke Orsino and disguises herself as a man to enter his world so she can be near him. A mix of comedy, tragedy and biting social commentary, this unique production is not to be missed. Learn More

Learn the laws necessary for surviving the jungles of adolescence in this primal reimagining of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. Adapting the most beloved and fearsome characters of the classic stories, the man cubs of Synetic Teen Company venture deep beneath the canopy to explore the trials, triumphs and rites of passage inherent to growing up in the jungles of the 21st Century.

Synetic’s Director of Education and Family Programs, Meg Maxwell, says, “The Jungle Book is a story we’ve been eager to do for a long time. Creating humans with these dark, animalistic qualities feels distinctly ‘Synetic.’ We’re proud of our teenagers for the incredible character work they’ve done to bring this jungle to life.”
