Romeo and Juliet


Shakespeare to Go

Join us for a wonderful Shakespearean theatrical event the whole family will enjoy! In an ideal setting at the Boulder Creek Branch's Outdoor Amphitheater, Shakespeare to Go will perform Romeo & Juliet. Shakespeare to Go has been taking Shakespeare on the road since 1984, with a mission to connect with local youth and give back to the community. A Shakespeare to Go team—comprised of a faculty director and student actors, designers, stage managers, assistant directors, and dramaturgs from UC Santa Cruz—work innovatively to bring a Shakespeare play to life by making it relevant to younger audiences. While the new script is shortened, the richness of Shakespeare’s language always remains. Each year, a UCSC Theater Arts faculty member creates a 50- minute adaptation of a Shakespeare play, and assembles a cast comprised of UCSC students. This year (Spring 2018), Shakespeare to Go will be performing the classic tragedy Romeo and Juliet, adapted and directed by UCSC Theater Arts faculty member Patty Gallagher.
