Romeo & Juliet is the timeless tale of two young lovers torn apart by the feud between their families, the Capulets and Montagues. Bare Theatre’s production will embrace an outdoor setting, epic sword fights, and lavish, Elizabethan costumes similar to how the play would have been performed at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. The classic tale of two families that cannot find compromise, even at the expense of the lives of their children, resonates with modern day struggles, and speaks to the terrible costs of such division within our communities.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR YOUR TRIP TO FOREST THEATRE:
All performances of Romeo & Juliet will begin at 2pm which means the box office opens at 1pm. The show will last approximately 2.5 hours. The seating area is stone steps so feel free to bring a camping chair. Also note that no alcoholic beverages are allowed at Forest Theatre.

Shakespeare is meant to be performed not read! Have your students experience one of the Bard’s most popular scripts as Shakespeare would have intended — in the open air, full of passion, fighting, and love.
School performances will include a discussion with directors and selected actors following show and a pre-showing in-class workshop with director Lucinda Danner Gainey to introduce students to the play and help them to know what to watch for. This is all included in the ticket price.
