Romeo and Juliet: A Love Song

PROGRAM NOTE

Set against the backdrop of a hot summer at the Verona campground, two kids from feuding families, the Montagues and the Capulets, notice each other for the first time. With naivety, they put aside all their parents cannot and discover they alone can turn their households' rancour to pure love. Falling madly for each other, two kids enlist the help of Friar, the campground vagabond, who weds them in a secret ceremony. But, before Romeo and Juliet can announce their marriage, events set them on a path that tests. This trailer-park rock opera is Shakespeare's original language reworked as an innovative musical score for a new generation.
