About the show

This summer The Greenhouse Ensemble brings you the timeless tale of "Romeo and Juliet." More…

From the show:

The Capulet and Montague households have been embroiled in a bloody fight for as long as anyone in Verona, Italy can remember. The death toll is mounting, and it seems that the best thing anyone can do is keep the two sides as far from each other as possible. But when young Romeo Montague crashes the Capulet ball, he falls head-over-heels in love with young Juliet Capulet – and she falls just as in love with him. What ensues is one of the most romantic and devastating love stories in the theatrical canon.

Also I do appreciate the friendly crews' offering of iced lemon water and I... Read more Read less

Low budget ws. some actors (mercutio!) terrific, others did not project well (benvolio). title characters were very good, as were nurse and mother. i’d see another play from this group any day!

Enchanting, Great writing, Ambitious

See it if What can I say, it is a nearly uncut R & J for 3 hours. It’s an ensemble, so the acting skills are uneven, but certainly with great efforts!

Don't see it if If Shakespeare play is not your cup of tea and you are not into supporting the small acting Community.
