Lions in Illyria

We’re packing our bags and hitting the road! Each year, QCT takes a show on the road to bring theatre to the community beyond our four walls.

Animals rule the world in this magical modern-language retelling of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. A young lioness named Violet is shipwrecked on the weird and wonderful shores of Illyria, where she quickly finds herself entangled in the wild (and wooly) drama of its residents. This high energy comedy is the perfect way to introduce Shakespeare to an elementary school audience!

Each booking of Lions in Illyria includes an exclusive QCT study guide following the production to help educate your students about the show.
