Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet was first performed in 1594 and now 424 years later this timeless classic is still one of the most popular and performed works of Shakespeare.  Romeo and Juliet has been adapted numerous times for stage, film, musical and opera venues and now Limelight Theatre (our first Shakespeare ever!).

Two star crossed lovers come together in spite of the constant opposition of their warring families.  Street brawls, a masquerade, hope and the best laid schemes of the well intentioned will lead to an inevitable and tragic conclusion.

Peter Clark (Director) brings a contemporary approach to this much loved Shakespearean classic, involving lights, sound, film, music and much more!  An accessible production suitable for young and old, first timers and Shakespearean and those wanting to experience how enjoyable Shakespeare really can be!

On line bookings can be made at any time. Phone bookings open on Monday 3rd September 0499 954 016 (Mon, Wed, Fri 9.00am to 12.00noon)

A Fairy Tale of Sorts

Performance dates: 28th June – 7th July 2018
