Romeo and Juliet (Giomi)

Regular price $12.00
( / )
This classic tale of love and death is both lively and accessible to young audiences. Romeo Montague and pals sneak into a ball given by the rival Capulet family, and there he first glimpses the beautiful Juliet. Later, beneath her balcony, he declares his loves which she embraces fully. Then a series of tragic events: Romeo’s kin Mercutio dies in a duel with Juliet’s cousin, Romeo kills in rash vengeance, Romeo & Juliet plan to marry in secret, Juliet fakes her death, Romeo does not get the message and kills himself, and then Juliet follows suit. This edited version deals with issues that have transcended time: youthful passion, parental disapproval, gang violence and teen suicide.
