Romeo and Juliet
Under the Stars
Sunday 14 March, 7:00pm
Essential Theatre has never been more proud to present a summer of entertainment with Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”.
After a year of uncertainty and challenges, let’s now celebrate together with one of the greatest love stories of all times.
This performance of “Romeo and Juliet” will be Essential Theatre’s 19th tour of Shakespeare in the Vines. Over the years the company has grown from strength to strength becoming one of Australia’s most exciting and formidable independent companies. Experience has taught them how to juggle inclement and unpredictable weather, noisy cockatoos, stray dogs and most importantly how to celebrate the brilliant words of William Shakespeare.
The company are commended each year on their professional and intelligent approach to the classics.
“A night spent in the company of these players is a wonderful experience.”
“A fabulous performance. Watching the sun set and sipping wine - it was the perfect summer's evening, thank you”
Shakespeare in the Vines is a successful, much loved event that has become a staple in many calendars across our country.
The Tale “For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo”
Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” is a love story for the ages. The Capulet and Montague households have been embroiled in a bloody fight for as long as anyone in Verona, Italy can remember. The death toll is mounting, and it seems that the best thing anyone can do is keep the two sides as far from each other as possible. But when young Romeo Montague crashes the Capulet ball, he falls head-over-heels in love with young Juliet Capulet – and she falls just as in love with him. What ensues is one of the most romantic and devastating love stories in the theatrical canon.
You are invited to sit back, breathe in the fresh air and swoon with us as we celebrate life and love post 2020!
