The National Players - Romeo and Juliet
Love can be a thrilling ride -- it bursts the seams of young hearts, making them feel things never felt before… But it can also send you past the point of no return. America’s longest running classical touring company returns to the Succop Theater with Shakespeare's most enduring tale, re-imagined, re-invigorated, and irresistibly visceral.
