Coronado Playhouse Audition Notice: Romeo & Juliet

    Coronado Playhouse presents William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare’s timeless story of two families divided by hate and two young lovers joined by fate.

    Capturing the urgency and tenderness of these young, star-crossed lovers whose attempt to find hope and reconciliation is shattered by the violent reality of their world, this fast-paced, exhilarating production will hold you spellbound and breathless.

    In a modern staging of this enduring love story, Director Tom Haine, takes Shakespeare’s 400 year-old classic and juxtaposes the language of bitterness, anger and recrimination against the poetry of desire, giddiness and attraction proving that Romeo and Juliet is as relevant and direct today as it was when the first audiences heard it.
