StoryBook Theatre Presents, What if Romeo and Juliet.

The Show takes place February 5 to 9. Check website for show times. StoryBook Theatre Presents, What if Romeo and Juliet… Presented in Partnership with Dynamo Theatre. This is a play that delves into the Shakespearean world and revisits the strikingly magnificent story of a great pain brought on by the hate between two families. The poetry of the bodies, the beauty of the bard’s words, the magic of the soundscape and appealing lighting all contribute as love, hate, revenge, tragedy, and romance come to blend. Could there be another ending to this famed story? What if someone decided to lay down one’s weapons? This show is recommended for ages 6 and up.
