ROMEO AND JULIET

DIRECTED BY David Horak

STAGE MANAGED BY Krystal Johnson

What if your first true love was someone you’d been told to hate? Caught between two feuding families, Shakespeare’s immortal young lovers Romeo and Juliet try to fashion a new world amid the violence of the old, but cataclysmic choices and tragic twists propel them toward a final confrontation with fate.

Relaxed Performance: August 31

TWELFTH
NIGHT

DIRECTED BY Amanda Goldberg

STAGE MANAGED BY Molly Pearson

Romance, music, mistaken identity, and more! Shipwrecked and alone, young Viola masquerades as her lost twin brother and becomes the go-between for the lovesick Duke Orsino and the fierce Countess Olivia. It isn’t long before Viola finds herself in the middle of a topsy-turvy love triangle. In one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedic masterpieces about unrequited love, these characters navigate the unruly waters of gender expression to find their true selves (and true love in the process)!

ASL Interpreted Performance: August 16

Relaxed Performance: August 24
