Program information: 

Generations collide when true love defies family expectations.  This timeless tale of the tragic consequences that grow from tribal hatred will be presented in a contemporary setting sure to capture the attention of audiences.  Transforming a story embedded in the cultural psyche by imagining it in a modern time and place, this new production of Romeo and Juliet reclaims a story of dangerous, impetuous love.  The Colwell Playhouse will be transformed to serve this particular retelling of Shakespeare’s ageless tragedy.

You must receive a confirmation notice (emailed by the CHP shortly before the program) to attend the event.  You must attend the presentation and the performance to receive KDR credit.
