The Cottage Theatre will begin its 2019 season with a performance of one of the most beloved and universal tales of the Western canon: William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet." Take a seat in the 150-seat theater to follow along as two star-crossed lovers begin a romance against the wishes of their feuding families. Will a marriage of hope, passion and faith be enough to end an ancient grudge between the Capulets and Montagues? This tragic romance of Shakespeare has become so well-known for a reason: masterful language accompanies scenes of forbidden love, sword fights, friendship and fatal mistakes. Tony Rust will direct this rendition for the Cottage Theatre.
