Romeo and Juliet
by touring company
Nov. 14 - Nov. 16
The Magik Theatre, San Antonio’s professional family theatre, presents Shakespeare on the River - a FREE event celebrating family-friendly Shakespeare. Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre will return to San Antonio for a fourth consecutive year to perform Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, reimagined for audiences of all ages.
“The unique spin that Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre brings to their productions makes it very family friendly and accessible for all ages,” said Chief Executive Officer Frank Villani. “It’s a perfect opportunity to introduce children to classical works, especially with a story as timeless as Romeo and Juliet. What better way to experience the story of ‘star-crossed lovers’ than under the stars?”
From Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre: "The fighting families of Montague and Capulet put their feud before their children’s happiness in this classic Shakespeare tale. This adaption is suitable for audiences of all ages. There are songs and comedy, but also intense emotional situations and some violence. The original story is intact, including Romeo and Juliet's tragic ending”.
Shakespeare on the River is generously funded by the City of San Antonio Center City Development and Operations Department, City of San Antonio Department of Arts and Culture, Elizabeth Huth Coates Charitable Foundation of 1992, Brown Foundation, Mid-America Arts Alliance, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
