William Shakespeare’s “The Tragedy of Romeo & Juliet” will be performed in a newly-imagined student production at 7 p.m. Friday and at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Kay White Hall.
More than 20 students, ranging in age from 8 to 16, composed an ensemble retelling of “Romeo & Juliet” set in current times on a high school campus.
While teacher and director Aimée Nicole Lewis van Roekel of ShakesKIDS! edited the show into a one-hour play, every other aspect of the production is collaborative — from set design to costumes and makeup, character development to choreography, creating a dynamic experience for performers and audience alike.
Admission is by donation at the door.
