Join the Fools for the return of a foolish favorite! Romeo and Juliet, the classic story of two young lovers divided by a family feud, borrows heavily from the tradition of Commedia dell’Arte.

Last performed in 2012, this high-octane version of Romeo and Juliet, featuring five actors in a one-hour performance, brings physical spectacularity to Shakespeare’s poetry and highlights the tragedy by juxtaposing it with humor. Our 2024 remount is performed by two rotating casts, both alike in dignity: the “Montague Cast” and the “Capulet Cast.”

The Montague Cast: Deimoni Brewington, Francesca Chilcote, Max Johnson, Mary Myers, and Jasmine Proctor.

The Capulet Cast: Travis Xavier Brown, Natalie Cutcher, Bri Houtman, Ben Lauer, and Robert Pike

Originally Conceived and Directed by: Dr. Matthew R. Wilson
Originally Created by & Starred: Gwen Grastorf, Drew Kopas, Toby Mulford, Paul Reisman, and Eva Wilhelm
