Our holiday smash hit returns to the Lincoln Park Conservatory for a sixth year! Join us as we once again enter Illyria. This year, Twelfth Night will be an immersive experience, meaning that scenes from the show will take place over the entirety of the Conservatory. Audience members will follow performers promenade-style from scene to scene, often having to choose which characters or plot points they’d like to follow. Midsommer Flight is thrilled to continue this holiday tradition with the Conservatory, and to have the opportunity for audiences to enjoy the beautiful space even more extensively than in years past.
COVID-19. All audience members will be required to wear a mask while inside the Conservatory AND provide proof of vaccination to attend a performance. Midsommer Flight cannot make exceptions to this policy. Read our full COVID-19 Policy here.
ACCESSIBILITY. Twelfth Night 2021 is an immersive experience in which audience members will follow actors on foot throughout the Conservatory. Audience members will be expected to walk and/or stand for the duration of the 75-minute performance. With advance notice, we can provide audience members who may be physically unable to do so with tips/guidelines in order to ensure they have an immersive and engaging experience. To ensure we can accommodate you, please notify boxoffice(at)midsommerflight(dot)com at least 72 hours in advance of the performance with your specific access needs.
