For those who need a Shakespeare refresher, in the comedy, a woman disguises herself as a man and countless love triangles pop-up because of her guise.

Here is a description of the play from Shakespeare in Clark Park:

Shipwrecked, stranded and separated, twins Viola and Sebastian each fears the other lost. Using her wits, Viola disguises herself as a page boy and stumbles into a love triangle that upends the island of Illyria. Join Shakespeare in Clark Park for a glam rock exploration of the Bard's classic romance featuring some of Philadelphia's finest student musicians, alongside professional actors in a land where music is the food of love. In this 'Twelfth Night,' anything can happen.

Remember to bring a blanket to sit on for the performance and pack a picnic to enjoy dinner and a show.

If it rains, "Twelfth Night" will be performed inside Harold Prince Theatre at 3680 Walnut St.
