THE PROGRAM
Shakespeare On Tour introduces thousands of students to Shakespeare during the months of September and October, when we take Shakespeare's work into the classrooms and communities of Nebraska.


THE PLAY
A community is divided, wracked with fear and rocked by violence. Romeo desperately struggles to retain what is left of art, beauty, and love. Juliet, clinging to her family for protection and strength, has fallen victim to their blind hatred. Despite the ongoing civil destruction, it is the internal conflict between head and heart that holds this world hostage. Presented through a heightened theatrical lens, this Romeo and Juliet seeks to lay bare the means of production, transforming characters before the audience and stripping away the disguise of live performance. This world must change or be forever broken.
