Romeo to Go

Romeo to Go(comedy, Saax Bradbury Players)
By Jonathan Rand

Due to budget cuts, there will only be a single session of Drama One for the entire school year—and the class will only last 20 minutes. To make matters worse, the students are required to perform an entire Shakespeare play for a schoolwide assembly during a time slot of only 10 minutes. Under the direction of the egomaniacal Mrs. Gunnysack, the beginner students must pull together for the fastest, cleanest, lowest-budget rendition of Romeo and Juliet the world has ever ween, complete with a makeshift balcony, interpretive dance fight sequences, and an Elizabethan hip-hop dance party that would even make P. Diddy shake his tailfeather with Shakespearean pride. Romeo to Go is a wacky, dancey, entrancing comedy based on the greatest love story ever told!

Evenings: July 12, 13, 19, 20 @ 7:30 pm
Matinees: July 14, 21 @ 2 pm
Admission: Advance $14,  Door $16,  Students and active duty military $10 with photo ID

A 19-year-old man has just stood for trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. It becomes personal and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry men. The jurors' final verdict and how they reach it will electrify you and keep you on the edge of your seat.
