After a tragic shipwreck, Viola finds herself washed ashore on the beach of Illyria, having lost her twin brother Sebastian in the storm. Masquerading as a young boy, Viola enters the service of Duke Orsino, who is in love with the lady Olivia. The Duke charges the disguised Viola to help him win Olivia’s hand.

Olivia, in pure Shakespearean style, falls in love with the disguised Viola who, in turn, has fallen in love with the Duke! Combine this wonderful and charming romantic comedy with the hysterical figures of Malvolio, Sir Andrew Aquecheek and Sir Toby Belch, and you have one of Shakespeare’s most riotous comedies of mistaken identity! Click here to learn more.

Aging Services KioskUnion County residents in need of services for seniors age 60 and older can get information quickly and conveniently by using ASK, Union County’s new mobile Aging Services Kiosk. ASK launched in May and so far the program has visited 10 public sites, including libraries and community centers. Another six locations have been scheduled for July.

Caregivers and family members are also welcome to visit any ASK location.
