In Shakespeare’s classic tale, two idealistic teens are pitted against their privileged families and a society consumed with senseless hatred and brutality. A lyric depiction of young love, Romeo and Juliet also examines the effects of violence and the redeeming power of devotion. Dynamic and deeply relevant, this new production is perfect for students in middle and high school.
