Shakespeare in the park is taken to a whole other level with the (lumin) theater lab performance of Twelfth Night at Spring Lake Park Reserve in partnership with Dakota County Parks. The show will be performed promenade style, where audiences follow the performers for about 1.5 miles through the trails of Spring Lake Park Reserve, Schaar's Bluff Trailhead.

Twelfth Night takes place after a shipwreck on the shores of a strange land. A love triangle, mistaken identities, passion and class give this tale twists and turns that will keep audiences entertained for the 90-minute production.

Shows will be performed May 12, 13, 19, and 20 at 3:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. An accessible performance will be May 20 at the Schaar's Bluff Gathering Center at 1 p.m.

(lumin)theater lab uses a sliding scale for ticket prices. All tickets are general admission regardless of what you pay. Attendees may choose the price range they would like to pay from $11-$41. To purchase a ticket, visit
