Christine and Keri, my new friends in the neighborhood, have put up the schedule for their Romeo and Juliet. Rebel Shakespeare is acted by kids - perhaps Christine or Keri can chime in and tell us what age group will be performing this show?
Friday August 22 5pm: The Athanaeum. Salem MA, outdoors in the garden... Friday nights they do a "speakers series" and Keri will be the speaker, and the kids will do the production. Very high class.
Saturday August 23 1pm: Mary Jane Lee Park, Salem MA. Saturday August 23 5pm: Open - Possibly Beverly or Marblehead.
Sunday August 24 1pm: Open - Possibly Beverly or Marblehead
Sunday August 24 5pm: Derby Square, Old Town Hall steps, Salem MA.
Monday -- Day off, or as they say in theatre "dark" day.
Tuesday August 26 1pm: The Senior Center, Salem MA
Tuesday August 26 6pm: Palmer Cove Ballfield. Salem MA. Around the corner from Mary Jane Lee Park, the outfield will be Verona, and the lights will be turned on so everyone can be seen.
Wednesday August 27 1pm: Tentative -- Moesley Woods Park, Newburyport MA. A natural wooded amphitheater with a giant rock sculpture/climbing thing that will be good for the balcony scene.
Wednesday August 27, 5pm: Winnekenni Castle, Haverhill MA.
I love the idea of Romeo and Juliet performed by kids on a playground. Seems like such a natural setting, which I suppose could turn really dark once the killing begins.
