The public is invited to revisit one of the greatest love stories of all time when Aquila Theatre Company returns to Frostburg with a stylish new production of Shakespeare’s classic “Romeo & Juliet” at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 5, at the Performing Arts Center Drama Theatre.
“Romeo & Juliet” depicts the compelling events that unfold out of the ancient rift between two great Italian families. Set in the vibrant city of Verona, two famous “star-crossed” teenage lovers follow their passion for each other against all odds in an ultimately tragic but beautiful story of eternal love.
Long considered to be a highly talented British and American ensemble, Aquila Theatre Company brings to life the exquisite poetry, flamboyant characters and taut narrative of this tragic and timeless tale of unrequited passion. Aquila is known for its bold, intelligent and sparkling productions of Shakespeare and has received invitations to Shakespeare festivals around the world. Founded in London in 1991 by Peter Meineck, the company is now based in New York City and features British and American artists dedicated to classical drama.
