Shakespeare in the State Parks – Romeo and Juliet
Shakespeare’s classic love story performed by six actors, plus educational workshops – free, accessible and fun for the whole family.
It’s the greatest love story ever told… with six actors, some sneakers and a trunk full of props. Shakespeare’s classic tale gets a fresh, fun, family-friendly adaptation in the great outdoors! Romeo and Juliet come from rival families, but quickly find that their love runs deeper than what keeps them apart. With the help of loyal friends, these star-crossed lovers seek their own happy ending, but (spoiler alert!) fate has its own plans for them.View more

Each Summit Players performance is an accessible 75-minute show preceded by a 45-minute educational workshop, entitled “Playing with Shakespeare: Get Outside with Will,” offered to kids and “fun adults.” The workshop starts at 5:30 p.m., the show starts at 7:00 p.m., and both are completely FREE!
This video contains clips from the 2017 and 2018 tours of Shakespeare in the State Parks, with footages of workshops and performances of The Comedy of Errors and Twelfth Night. These clips demonstrate the Summit Players style of audience participation in creating the environment of the show and how the players use both character and text in workshop settings. It also demonstrates how the use of minimal props and costumes are used to tell the stories in a variety of different park settings.
