Shakespeare to Go presents a 50-minute version of "Romeo and Juliet" in a lovely outdoor setting at the Boulder Creek Library.
Romeo is a Montague, and Juliet a Capulet. Their families are enmeshed in a feud, but the moment they meet—when Romeo and his friends attend a party at Juliet's house in disguise—the two fall in love and quickly decide that they want to be married.
Shakespeare to Go has been taking Shakespeare's plays on the road since 1984, with a mission to connect with local youth and give back to the community. Each year, a team of UCSC students works innovatively to bring one of Shakespeare's plays to life by making it relevant to younger audiences. While the new script is shortened, the richness of Shakespeare’s language always remains.
