Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theater will perform "Twelfth Night (or What You Will)," the timeless Shakespearean tale of mistaken identity and misplaced matrimony. This three-tea-tray production, adapted and directed by Vít Horejš, will feature 22 eight-inch toy marionettes and three (more or less) live performers. To tell Shakespeare's tale of twins separated in a shipwreck, the production will have eight- inch wonders of Czech craftsmen cavorting on the sands of Illyrian beaches, almost perishing in tumultuous waters teeming with giant fish and turtles, and bathing in champagne at the court of that paragon of Uptown decadence, Count Orsino. The lovelorn Count Orsino, the bumbling Toby Belch and his clowny compadres will be cast with woodenheaded actors. The waterfalls of wooing words written by William Shakespeare are adapted by that modern master of Bohemian rhapsodies, Vit Horejš.
