Carroll Theatre Announces Romeo & Juliet/Romea & Julian

Carroll Theatre is excited to cast Shakespeare’s most famous tale of forbidden love, gender swapped.  Join this Junior-Senior-level troupe as they explore Shakespeare’s tragic tale of star-crossed lovers in a new light. This gender-bending production maintains Shakespeare’s script while transforming the classic characters into Romea & Julian, upending stereotypes and invigorating this timeless tale with modern relevance.

Carroll Theatre will only be performing the show three times: Thursday, September 19 at 7 p.m., Friday, September 20 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, September 21 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door only. The show will be performed at the Carroll Senior High School Auditorium at 1501 W. Southlake Blvd.

Due to ongoing construction at Carroll Senior High, it is best to enter the auditorium through the west door by the “Gym Entrance” sign and wlak through the auditorium door off the hallway. The main entrance to the auditorium is under construction as workers demo the entrance/foyer to the auditorium to connect it to the art building & new music center.
