"Shakespeare & The Wild West"
Cowboy Up! Nebraska Shakespeare takes the English bard's work to Valentine.

Nebraska Shakespeare partnered with NET in 2013 to acquaint Nebraskans across the state with Shakespeare’s work through community events and Shakespeare Uncovered series. The NET crew followed the Nebraska Shakespeare On Tour production of Twelfth Night to Valentine, Nebraska. 

The On Tour production of Twelfth Night was a fast-paced comedy directed by Vincent Carlson-Brown, dynamic and dangerous, with mischievous tricks and a moving story surrounded by Music, set in an 18th Century British Isles Pirate World. A shipwreck has left twins Sebastian and Viola stranded, separated from each other, unknowing if the other has survived. Viola must disguise her gender, becoming 'Cesario' in the service of Orsino in an attempt to make her way in this strange new land.

For the eighth consecutive year, Shakespeare On Tour exemplified the NS commitment and mission to serve as an inspiration for promoting the life-affirming values of Shakespeare, and experiencing the beauty and richness of his plays. Shakespeare On Tour performed and conducted workshops in Middle and High Schools throughout the state of Nebraska and Western Iowa, serving a total of 41 communities and about 7,500 persons.
