The original love story told the original way.
Shake-Scene Shakespeare presents Romeo & Juliet prepared from lines & cues only – no group rehearsal. Just as plays were prepared in Shakespeare’s day.
Montagues & Capulets brawl in the streets of Verona – lovesick Romeo confesses his heartache & gate-crashes the Capulets’ ball – the love-struck teenagers marry in secret & a happy ending beckons before tragedy strikes.
All the actors will have studied and learned their part – their lines & their cues. They hear each other’s lines first time in front of the audience, and the play comes to life for the very first time on stage.
The stakes are high for the Montagues, the Capulets, and the actors.
“This high-stakes immediacy is what makes this work really magical. We all love that moment of discovery, whether it’s on stage or screen” – The Stage
“Almost as much of a surprise for the cast as for the audience – and it’s a thrill…This takes quite some acting skill on their parts” – Ham & High
Estimated Run Time: 50-60 minutes
Suitable For All Ages
