The University of West Florida Department of Theatre will present William Shakespeare’s timeless classic “Romeo & Juliet.” Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 14 and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 15. All performances will take place at the Saenger Theatre, 118 S. Palafox Place, in downtown Pensacola.
The Capulets and the Montagues are embroiled in a bloody, generations long feud. Amidst the hostilities, teenagers Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet manage to find love. With the help of Friar Laurence, the young star-crossed lovers concoct a plan to marry in secret and escape the city. Sadly, their happiness is not meant to be as the play meets a tragic end in true Shakespearean fashion.
One of Shakespeare’s most well-known and adapted works, the Department of Theatre production will be presented in the traditional format. Director Scott Hudson, assistant professor of theatre, will be joined by student designers: Cory Tucker, scenery; Kendall Dayton, costumes; and Emily Carff, sound. Lighting design is by Charles Houghton, chair of theatre and fight choreography by guest artist, Dan Granke.
