The OES Visual, Performing, & Musical Arts Department Presents:
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
November 8–11, 2023, 7 p.m. PST
Directed by: Peter Buonincontro
Shakespeare’s complex and heart-breaking romance comes to life on the OES stage this fall. This interpretation of the famous literary love story has the young ill-fated couple and their families scratching out a living in a dingy waterfront community. The audience will be swept up in the passion, vicious feud, and ultimate tragedy that befalls these fair lovers of Verona. True to the original and packed with action, this succinct version explores characters whose choices are driven by the heart, make irrevocable decisions, confront family and social expectations, and experience the magic and grief of first true love.
Please join us for a Preshow Reception on Friday, November 10 at 6 p.m. in the US Lobby. Beverages and appetizers will be provided by Parent Partnership and the Development Office until curtains up at 7pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
RSVPs will go live on Friday, October 18.
