“By any other word would smell as sweet. But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.”
Paramout Hudson Valley Arts Presents
Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s Spring Shakespeare Tour
Shakespeare’s tragic tale of two young lovers.
Embroiled in a feud ignited by their own families, Romeo and Juliet find their world at odds between an unwavering devotion to each other and the pressure from others to pull them apart. This 90-minute production also features a talkback with the actors
Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s ROMEO AND JULIET will be set in a New England prep school. The Montagues and Capulets are elite families who have sent children to this school for generations. While united by class, they are bitterly divided by tradition and ideology. There are other rifts and tensions at the school involving wealthy students and scholarship students, parents and children, teachers and staff. The Nurse is Juliet’s nanny; the friars are faculty.
