Romeo and Juliet is part of MMT’s Young Audiences Series: producing theatre by young people, for young people. Shakespeare’s most famous play about love, family feuds, and inevitable tragedy takes on a new life through the work of local youth performers. Romeo and Juliet is best suited for families with middle and high school students. This production features student performers, designers, and technicians. Each of the Pay-What-You-Can performances will include the distribution of free books to student audience members as part of our initiative connecting theatre to literacy.
Romeo and Juliet features Jacob Wadstrom (Romeo), Haley Chey Lynch (Juliet), Kira Shelor (Nurse), Charles Meidlinger (Friar Lawrence), Isaac Bouldin (Mercutio), Caroline Weston (Benvolio), Ann Marie Thorell (Peter, Abraham, & others), Bayla Kessler (Sampson, Friar John, & others), Simon Elliott (Paris), and Ryan Ramey (Tybalt).
Romeo and Juliet is adapted and directed by Travis Kendrick, associate directed by Victoria Buck, and production stage managed by Tatiana Durant.
Romeo and Juliet runs October 19 - 26 on the Waldron Stage. General admission tickets are available only at the door, 30 minutes in advance of each performance, and are ‘pay what you can’.
