Romeo and Juliet

By SALT Academy and Performing Arts Co (other events)

7 Dates Through Jan 27, 2018

Come and see the classic version followed by a modern and slightly comical version of this timeless Shakespearean masterpiece. The modern version, "Juliet and this guy Romeo" by Don Zolidis, is the story of two rival families at war in Verona, Wisconsin. The adults argue about politics on Facebook all night long, while the teenagers aggressively hashtag each other all day. But when a pair of teens from the different families fall so crazy in love that they start speaking in iambic pentameter, it's a tragedy waiting to happen. This zany comedy skewers the online animosity between liberals and conservatives with a little help from Shakespeare. (
