Shakespeare Unplugged: Twelfth Night

Development Workshop

NOVEMBER 2021

written and composed by Scotty Arnold

directed by Liz Dahmen

movement direction by Mandy Work Wetzel

In November of 2021, the Lab collaborated with composer and writer Scotty Arnold on a two-week development workshop of his new musical adaptation of Twelfth Night. Under the direction of Liz Dahmen and movement direction of Mandy Work Wetzel, a group of 6 actors dove headfirst into the world of Twelfth Night as reimagined by Scotty Arnold. 

The two-week intensive workshop was followed by a one-night community event where participants enjoyed live performances of excerpts from the adaptation followed by discussions and interactive exercises that highlighted the Lab’s process of developing new work.
