Romeo & Juliet is one of the world’s most timeless stories, full of comedy, romance, poetry and strife. We are giving the star-crossed lovers a shake up by having women/non binary young people play the title roles. Our Verona is a town on the English seaside where Montagues and Capulets are having a turf war in the midst of roller-skating, ice cream runs and beach hut renovations. This summer, re-discover one of Shakespeare’s classics like you’ve never seen – or heard! – it before, with the classic text and contemporary songs, created by the British Youth Music Theatre young company themselves.
