Alchemical Theatre Company was formed in November 2017. The upcoming 2018 season includes a production of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, and an educational outreach activity through Make Trouble, an advanced training and repertory ensemble. As a professional theater company, their mission is to grow the number of productions and educational programs done per year with ongoing outreach to the Cape Fear region. Alchemical Theatre seeks to bring people to the Cape Fear region as a destination theater and a place known for excellence in Shakespeare.

The Lumina Festival of the Arts is pleased to present Alchemical Theatre’s production of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, a play about mistaken identities, a shipwreck, women dressed as men, and a “most wonderful” love triangle. Can it get any more Shakespearean?
