This abridged version brings the Shakespeare classic to the Clarke stage for the first time. One of Shakespeare’s most beloved and often produced plays, ROMEO AND JULIET shares with the audience the tragic romance of the archetypal young lovers.
“This classic, tragic, and timeless story continues to be one of Shakespeare’s most accessible plays, and one that beautifully depicts all of the heart-breaking nuances of young but forbidden love. We are so excited to share with audiences this condensed and excitingly fresh interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s masterpieces,” said Joe Klinebriel, Director and Clarke University Professor of Drama.
The cast includes Clarke University students Darius Autry, Alannah Walker, Jamese Kane, Kayla Winandy, Hanna Hoftender, Cody Sauer, Alison English, Christian English, and Clarke Professor of Chemistry Sunil Malapati. Romeo will be played by Autry, while Juliet will be played by Walker.
