Hope Summer Repertory Theatre Presents Romeo and Juliet

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

So opens Romeo and Juliet, perhaps Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy and a timeless warning to grudge-bearing elders and impetuous youth alike. The Hope Summer Repertory Theatre adapts the Bard’s original text for a modern setting, showing that the accumulation of centuries can guard against neither petty rivalries nor the heady poison of young love. The Capulets and the Montagues have been battling for generations, but a chance encounter and instant connection between their scions, Romeo and Juliet, leads to reconciliation under the most tragic circumstances possible. After the famous balcony scene, an unforgettable vignette that descends into an argument about the meaning of the word “wherefore,” the lovers struggle against the fate their families have drawn for them, only to fall victim to their adolescent temerity. An immortal tale that takes on more dimensions with every new adaptation, Romeo and Juliet has inspired countless stories of star-crossed lovers, from West Side Story to High School Musical.
