Sauk Valley Community College and the Woodlawn Arts Academy present Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Thank you to Savant Capital Management, the title sponsor of this event.
Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare's age old tale of two star crossed lovers, is one known to all of us. We read it in high school and have heard it referenced in countless books, movies, and television programs. See this moving tale of love, loss, friendship, family, and hatred this summer outdoors on the backlawn of the Woodlawn Arts Academy. Embrace the romance and experience the heartache along with some of literature and theatre's most famous characters. Young lovers, protective parents, tragedy, comedy, sacrifice, and sword fights- this play has something for everyone.
This year Shakspeare in the Park will not only be selling water at each show but audiences can also purchase a cheese and cracker plate and/or dessert plate. Audiences may also bring their own food and drink including adult beverages.
Children can once again take part in Shakespeareience!, a kids camp offered during all performanes of the show. Cost is $10 per child; discounts are available for families with more than one child interested in participating in the camp.
