Camp Encore presents Romeo and Juliet at the Greenbelt Arts Center, July 12-13

2017 Camp Encore presents Romeo and Juliet at the Greenbelt Arts Center, July 12-13

Camp Encore presents:
Romeo and Juliet
“My only love sprung from my only hate”
By William Shakespeare
Directed and adapted by Kate Magill Robinson

Join director Kate Magill Robinson and the Camp Encore troupe leaders as they delve into Shakespeare’s most iconic tragic love story. Rival gangs – the Capulets and the Montagues – patrol the streets of Verona, ripping the city into factions as they play out an age-old vendetta. Against the backdrop of this epic feud, Romeo Montague crashes a Capulet party with his friends, and there he first sets eyes upon the beautiful Juliet, the heir to the Capulet family. The star-crossed lovers attempt to live out the passion of their hasty romance and secret marriage, amidst the violence of their families’ feud. But fate, fortune, and a series of cataclysmic circumstances steer them off-course toward their inescapably tragic end.

PARENTAL ADVISORY: Not recommended for those under 12.

PERFORMANCES: Wednesday, July 12 at 1:00pm and Thursday, July 13 at 4:00pm and 7:00pm.

Performance Location: Greenbelt Arts Center
