Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
Produced by National Players
November 27 at 10:30
Recommended for high school audiences
The venerable National Players makes literature live for its audiences by engaging their minds and touching their hearts with fresh, contemporary takes on the classics. Love can be a thrilling ride -- it bursts the seams of young hearts, making them feel things never felt before… But it can also be a dangerous thing -- it can split you open and send you past the point of no return. This year, America’s longest running classical touring company brings to BlackRock Shakespeare’s most enduring tale, re-imagined, re-invigorated, and irresistibly visceral.
