Shakespeare in the Park: "Romeo and Juliet"

07/24/2009 7:00 pm

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company (CSC) returns to the Community Park this summer with their performance of Romeo and Juliet. The production will be directed by CSC Artistic Associate Christopher Guthrie in a very contemporary urban setting using Shakespeare's original text.  

Last year's Midsummer Night's Dream was a hit with even the youngest audience members. CSC presents Shakespeare in  a way that is fun and exciting for those new to Shakespeare as well as seasoned fans. Romeo and Juliet's story of teenage romance and explosive family feuds is perfect for an outdoor setting and a great way for the whole family to enjoy Shakespeare together. 

The touring company also includes Billy Chace, Jolin Polasek, Travis McElroy, Lauren Shiveley, and Josh Stamoolis. 

The free performance on July 24th will begin at 7:00 p.m. Shakespeare in the Park is generously sponsored by National City/PNC.
