Join Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward’s University Department of Performing Arts, as we continue our 45th anniversary season with William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
In the heart of fair Verona emerges a love too powerful to be stilled by deadly feuding between the city’s two most prominent families. Romeo is a forlorn lover, despondent over his unrequited affections until he is blindsided by Juliet, whose beauty teaches the torches to burn bright. There’s just one problem: she is the daughter of his father’s sworn enemy. Driven by their passion, the young lovers embark on a romance that still enchants audiences 400 years after its premiere.
