Mar 05 - 22 2015
Romeo and Juliet -Tampa Shakespeare Festival

See Shakespeare for free in the beautiful surroundings of downtown Tampa's Water Works Park.  The Festival brings two productions playing in repertory — Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet — on alternating nights.  You have six chances to see each — so pack a picnic, bring a folding chair or blanket, and enjoy some outdoor theatre.

The well-known tale of Romeo and Juliet finds it's title characters caught in the midst of their families' long-fought feud. The couple meet at a feast thrown by the Capulets and are instantly drawn to one another. They struggle to ignite their love against their families hate. Romeo and Juliet is directed by Megan Lamasney (Disco Pigs, Alcestis) and will run March 6, 8, 12, 14, 20, and 22.

Tampa Shakespeare Festival has brought together a talented company of actors who will play roles in both productions. Associate Artistic Director, Jack Holloway will play the title in Macbeth and the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet. Sharing the stage with him will be Jamie Jones as Romeo and Derrick Phillips as Duncan and MacDuff and Melissa Ruchong as Lady Capulet and Lady Macbeth.

Tampa Shakespeare Festival is a new organization working to bring the works of William Shakespeare and other classical playwrights to Tampa communities in a fun and accessible way. Our goal is to create productions that are fast paced and enjoyable for the whole family. Tampa Shakespeare Festival's inaugural season will be performed outdoors at Waterworks Park and will be free to the entire community.
