Woodinville High School Theatre Company is excited to present its upcoming winter play, William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” The show runs Jan. 28-31 at 7 p.m. in the Woodinville High School Theater.
Everyone knows the play — two households, two young lovers…a balcony. So, how do you make a tale that has been told thousands upon thousands of time, and read by every ninth grader for the past century, accessible and engaging to a modern audience? The WHS Theatre Company has adapted the play in such a way to move the action forward at a contemporary pace, reset the show in a stark black and white world, cross-cast several key players, yet has retained the language, structure and spirit of Shakespeare’s tragedy. Come out and see this classic in a new light.
Imagine this: you’re at Emerald City Comicon, rushing through the convention center to get to the next panel, your hands full of papers and knickknacks you’ve collected. You’ve spent the whole weekend standing in line to get photos and autographs with celebrities from your favorite TV shows, getting drawings from your favorite artists, and collecting business cards from vendors so you can check out their online stores when you get home. At the end of the weekend, odds are all that stuff will go into a plastic bag and to the bottom of your closet.
