Romeo & Juliet is PG-13 for Violence, Action, and all the Shakespearean bawdy humor.
Of Shakespeare’s great tragedies few have such influence on persistent popular culture; ‘Romeo and Juliet’ has become synonymous with any young or unapproved love affair. New love and ancient grudges drive the plot of “The Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet,” for this is a tragedy of errors in judgement. Juliet is at times determined as well as impossibly naïve, and Romeo is loyal, impassioned, and fickle. Love at first sight, coupled with long-standing family grudges and expectations, leads to the loss of the futures of two families. The story’s surpassing timelessness keeps it at the forefront of Shakespeare’s plays, for who has not felt “love’s heavy burden"?
Sadie Raeburn as Juliet, and Preston Aldrich as Romeo, with the talents of: Jennifer Anderson, Emily Wolfe, John Halstead, Rob James, Stevie Jenkins, John McBrayer, Stephen Hayward, William Rouse, Lee West, Jim-Bob Williams, Bri Parks,Samantha Phalen Jan Johnson, Alondra Johnson, Audrey Maroney, Rene Gorby, Fiona Sullivan and Susi Cantley.
