Romeo and Juliet

By William Shakespeare; Adapted by Kristina Cummins

Romeo (Kolby King) and Juliet (Johanna Chhay) are drawn to each other from the first time they meet, despite the feud that has torn their families apart for ages. Placed in a dystopian futuristic world, the concerns of love, loyalty, and strife still resonates as we relate to the universal themes so well crafted by William Shakespeare. Bawdy humor, sword fights, romance, and turmoil are all elements bound to engage our audiences as we look to love to bring hope in a dark and desperate world. However, fate may have a different plan.
