Sauk Valley Community College and the Woodlawn Arts Academy present Shakespeare's Romeo and JulietThank you to Savant Capital Management, the title sponsor of this event.

The Show:
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.

Concessions:
