How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Twelfth Night is a great, funny play with a lot of potential for a creative company to make it unique -- But this is really special!! Oak Park Festival Theatre has outdone itself in an amazing, heartfelt, hilarious and tender performance. The acting is sincere, the set is perfectly quirky, and every detail, every sight gag, every gesture is on target. And if you have not been to Oak Park Festival Theatre you may not know the beautiful, relaxed, spacious outdoor setting - wonderful picnics all around (or you can just grab a chair), good acoustics, and the setting sun. I never dreamed the "beach party" theme could work for this play and I was just amazed and the way this company makes it work - it is FUN and completely natural, from the first moment of the sixties music playing while you are relaxing before the show. Parking is easy, right across the street, and the OPFT staff are the most pleasant and friendly anywhere. Don't miss it - this is the perfect summer show!
