Performances at 7.45pm

The young actors of Progress Youth Theatre bring their unique take on William Shakespeare's tragedy of star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet

"Two households, both alike in dignity
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. 
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life 
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife."

The feud between the noble houses of Capulet and Montague is deep and bitter. So when the son of one house falls in love with the daughter of the other, what can come of it?
