Romeo and Juliet
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Ron Heneghan

What light from yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.

Join us for a 10am matinee performance of the classic tale of star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Fall in love again as you enjoy our professional production up close in our intimate, award-winning theater. You’ll sing along with pre-show music, gasp during thrilling swordfights, and swoon to the sumptuous language. Stick around afterward for a moderated question-and-answer session with the actors, if you wish.
