Directions Theatre is celebrating their 20th production in the Botanical Gardens and for just $25 for adults and $15 for concession, it's worth seeing!
Romeo and Juliet is about an old feud between the Capulet's and the Montague's, as two teenagers from opposite sides fall in love at first sight.
Married in secret, they hope for reconciliation between their families, but when short tempers lead to deadly consequences, the young lovers find themselves alone, facing impossible odds and making desperate decisions.
While it starts as a comedy, it soon transforms into a heart-stirring love story, featuring Shakespeare's extraordinary poetry.
The play directed by CJ Bowers, is a modern take on the world's greatest love story.
“Romeo and Juliet is the love story that people return to again and again,” Bowers says.
“The passion and energy within the play has always felt fresh and contemporary.”
So purchase your tickets and get ready to dive into this love story.
