Rehearsals for Romeojuliet@twilight kick off
13 February 2018
Summerset residents, alongside professional actors and crew, are getting ready for the innovative new production of Shakespeare's classic, Romeo and Juliet.
This modern take on a classic follows Romeo and Juliet, who fall in love at Twilight Retirement Village but find their romance is objected to by their families. Juliet’s granddaughter arranges to move her to another village with the help of lawyer Paris. Rather than be separated, Romeo and Juliet secretly decide to elope.
Full cast rehearsals have kicked off. Take a peek behind the scenes, and meet two of our actors, Jean and Brian, from Summerset on the Coast.
The production is sponsored by Summerset and will run between Wednesday 28 February and Saturday 3 March at the Lower Hutt Little Theatre. You can purchase tickets online from Nextstage Theatre (www.nextstage.co.nz)
