BRATTLEBORO -- New England Youth Theatre presents Shakespeare’s most enduring love tragedy, "Romeo & Juliet," directed by Peter Gould, with performances Oct. 12-21.
This production will be powerful, emotional, physical, and faithful to the text, as the actors and audience grapple with issues that still tear at our hearts: youthful love and passion, communication between teens and parents, violence, revenge and suicide; and how suddenly -- brutally -- fate can barge in and ruin all our best-laid plans.
"Romeo & Juliet" runs at 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 12, 13 and 19 and 20, and at 2 p.m., on Saturdays and Sundays, Oct. 13, 14, 20 and 21.
Tickets are $9 for students, $11 for seniors, and $13 for adults. Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.neyt.org or at the NEYT box office in person, or by phone at 802-246-6398, from noon to 5 p.m., on Wednesdays. The show is presented at New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat St. New England Youth Theatre is an accessible theater, with Assistive Listening Devices for patrons who are hard of hearing.
