Romeo & Juliet
Shakespeare’s tragedy of “star-crossed lovers” is a lively 90-minute production which emphasizes language, pleasure in playing and the relationship that exists between the actors and the audience. Shakespeare & Company actors create a wonderful rapport with students, and while they make Shakespeare immediate and accessible, they never dumb it down. Taking students to see Shakespeare gives them an opportunity to experience his plays as live theatrical events, rather than simply as literature. The performance is followed by an interactive audience talkback.
