Romeo & Juliet
6pm nightly, + 2pm Saturday Matinees
Directed by Derek Doddington
For this year’s Summer Shakespeare Festival, TOP DOG THEATRE is performing what so many people refer to as “the ultimate Love Story”…. Yeap, that’s right, Romeo and Juliet.
What a fantastic opportunity to see one of the world’s most famous plays. This year’s show is directed by Derek Doddington.
Set in Verona, in Italy, Mona Vale will be transformed for this great love story and tragedy.
“This will be a Romeo and Juliet as many of you have never seen before”, says Derek Doddington. With over 70 actors auditioning, he is delighted with an absolutely top class cast, headed by Romeo and Juliet, who are both of the age for whom Shakespeare wrote the play.
Yes, Juliet is 13 years old, in the play and in real life. This brings a whole new dynamic to the play, as you have never seen before.
Venue: The Mound Lawn, Mona Vale Gardens, Christchurch. Opens on Wednesday 12th February and runs through to Saturday 22nd February. Performances are 6pm to 8pm every night, with added matinees on both Saturdays.
