Youth Shakes: Romeo and Juliet

Recurring event see all

May 19 at 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Toxicity, nurture, growth, love, rage, and plague. This spring, our Youth Shakes Student Ensemble will turn to Shakespeare’s famous story of young lovers to help us understand the seasons of change we find ourselves in now.

Centering on the story of two young heirs suffering under the weight of familial obligations and expectations, Romeo and Juliet find peace and understanding in one another. When their pleas for understanding and acceptance fall on deaf ears, the consequences prove dire.

Youth Shakes is more than just putting on a play, it is an experience that fosters compassion, creates better listeners, promotes critical thinking, and develops courage. And it’s a whole lot of fun with new friends. Who knew a play could do all that?
