A cast and crew of over 100 middle school students will bring Romeo and Juliet Together (and Alive!) at Last to the Edison Intermediate School stage October 25-27.
In this adaption, Pete Saltz, the pudgy poet from S.O.R. Losers has fallen hard for Anabell Stackpoole, and she likes him, too, but, both are much too shy to do anything about it.
It is Pete’s friend, Ed Sitrow, to the rescue as he and other eighth-graders at South Orange River School cook up a scheme to give the budding romance a boost.
The school production of Romeo and Juliet stars the bashful pair in the leading roles – and everybody’s waiting for the kissing scenes. What they get is more action than Shakespeare ever imagined, in the funniest, most disastrous…. and most romantically successful production ever!
Performances are Thursday, October 25 at 4 p.m., Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. The Thursday matinee is a special presentation for elementary school students, accompanied by their parents, and senior citizens, with open seating tickets available at the door for $5.00.
Purchase reserved seating tickets for the evening performances for $8.00 at the door. Edison Intermediate School is located at 800 Rahway Avenue in Westfield, New Jersey.
