ALJHS Drama Department Presents - Romeo and Juliet
Arthur L. Johnson High School Proudly Presents, "Romeo and Juliet". Performances will take place on Thursday, November 17, Friday, November 18, and Saturday, November 19, 2011. All show times are at 7:00pm and all seats are $5.
“A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life…” on the stage of Arthur L. Johnson High School in their Drama Department’s production of Romeo and Juliet. One of the greatest love stories ever told will premiere on the ALJ stage in November for only three performances. Director Peter Nevargic, has taken the famed Shakespeare play and relocated it from Verona, Italy to Verona, New Jersey. It is modernized, revamped, at times uproarious, and given a “Jersey-licious” twist. Yet, Shakespeare’s words are still intact and tell the story of two impetuous teenagers who rebel against their parents to follow their passion to an untimely end—all in the name of love. Not to be missed!
