Romeo and Juliet

ROMEO AND JULIET: CHICAGO-STYLE MARCH 12-21

 

February 9, 2015 (El Cajon)—The Stagecoach Theatre at Grossmont College will present Romeo and Juliet, arguably the greatest love story in English literature, in eight performances in March.  This production has a twist—set against the turbulent backdrop of Prohibition Era Chicago, blending a mafia family drama with the timelessness of forbidden love.

BARE: A POP OPERA

 

By Walter G. Meyer

July 22, 2014 (San Diego)--Don’t let the word “opera” in the title make you think this is your grandmother’s type of opera. Borrowing less from Verdi and Wagner than Out and Seventeen, this show is a powerful look at the very real problems of today’s teens. “Bare: a pop opera” is set in a Catholic boarding school and features some kids who have problems. Although most of the show is sung—there is very little dialog—including parts of Romeo and Juliet, the show moves quickly and is easy to follow.
