Free Preview Performance of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ Touring Show Set for January 24
GREENSBORO, NC (January 9, 2020) – The Drama Center of City Arts will hold a free preview performance of the touring show “Romeo and Juliet, a 45-minute Foray” at 7 pm, Friday, January 24 at the Van Dyke Performance Space in the Greensboro Cultural Center, 200 N. Davie St. The show is also available for bookings by schools and community organizations. The cost is $300 and scholarships are available. Any bookings made at the preview performance will receive a discount.
Designed as an introduction to Shakespeare, the play is part perspective, part narration and part actual scenes from the play. Stanton Davis, an actor and theatre professor at Northern Illinois University, says reading Shakespeare is like “going to a restaurant and eating the menu.” It’s meant to be seen onstage. This adaptation brings Shakespeare’s words to vibrant life. Five actors play numerous roles. And yes, there is kissing and sword fighting.
