The cast of the Twelfth Night Cariad Wallace, Grant Foulkes, Jean Goodwin, Drew Tingwell, Tom heath, Sharon Davis, Helen Hopkins and Jack Dixon-Gunn (front).

Yarrawonga’s Byramine Homestead will feature on the Shakespeare in the Vines program.

As part of the 16th summer tour of Shakespeare’s classics at some of Australia’s most spectacular wineries and gardens, Byramine Homestead will host the performance of Twelfth Night.

Presented by Moira Arts and Culture and Essential Theatre, the event provides an outdoor theatre experience on Sunday, February 4.

Essential Theatre has re-interpreted the classic text for modern audiences with artistic director Amanda LaBonte returning to direct the comedy.

Professional actors will take the audience on a joyful ride, as Byramine Homestead is transformed into the magical land of Illyria.

After a raging shipwreck, Viola finds herself washed ashore, separated from her twin brother Sebastian, and alone on the beach of Illyria.

The town is familiar, but somewhat strange — a dreamland where music is the food of love and nobody is quite what they seem.

Mischief ensues, hearts are tangled, pranks are played and Viola finds herself right in the middle of a love triangle.

Shakespeare in the Vines is on Sunday, February 4, at Byramine Homestead, 1436 Murray Valley Hwy, Yarrawonga, from 4pm for a 6pm start. Tickets are available at www.trybooking/SCQS
