The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company will present one of the Bard’s masterpiece works in a free performance, 7 p.m. September 3 at RiversEdge Amphitheater.
The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company says:
One of the most beloved romantic tragedies in Shakespeare’s canon, Romeo and Juliet is the tale of Bard’s star-crossed lovers. Romeo and Juliet fall instantly in love only to discover they come from feuding families. In defiance of their families, amidst the animosity of friends and in concealment from their mentors, a young couple risk everything to be together. CSC is proud to present “Romeo and Juliet” and prove its continued relevance in the lives of young and old alike, throughout the ages.
The 2015 Shakespeare in the Park Tour features over 22 performances stops of brand new productions of “Romeo and Juliet” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” throughout the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area at local community parks and venues.
These performances feature six actors from CSC Resident Ensemble. Following the Park Tour, these shows will travel
and tour to local schools, community centers, venues and
other performing arts locations through May 2016.
Last year, CSC’s FREE Shakespeare in the Park tour had nearly 10,000 people in attendance!
The productions this year will feature brand new costume and scenic design. “Romeo and Juliet” is set in modern day featuring a super hero costume ball for the Capulets party where Juliet meets Romeo for the first time and contemporary design.
All shows will have actors voices amplified on microphones and spe
