Romeo and Juliet Take Tucson

Posted By on Tue, Sep 20, 2016 at 2:31 PM

"To be or not to be, that is the question." Or is the question to go or not to go? Well no matter the question the answer is most definitely Tucson's 10th Annual Shakespeare in the Park event. Now, everyone has heard of the reputable Shakespeare in the Park that happens in New York City. But, did you know that for 10 years Tucson has done the same exact thing right in our own backyard? The yearly event is put on by the El Rio Theatre Project and this year the group is tacking the age old classic, Romeo and Juliet

For a refresher: Romeo and Juliet is a tale of star-crossed lovers who find themselves and their love in the midst of a family feud. The story takes them on a journey of trials and tribulations that will put their love to the test.

Romeo and Juliet is arguably Williams Shakespeare's most famous work and it is a sight that you will not want to miss. 

One leg of the show has already passed, but do not fret because there are still two more to enjoy. Make sure to catch Romeo and Juliet either Sept. 22-25 or Sept. 29- Oct. 2. Admission into the event is free, but donations are gladly accepted. Make sure to mark your calendars because I'm sure this play will be to die for.
