Tickets are now on sale for an Aquila Theatre Co. performance of William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” the sixth performance of the 2006-2007 season of the University of Missouri-Rolla Campus Performing Arts Series.
The performance will be held at 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 19, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets on the UMR campus. Admission is $28 for adults and $18 for students age 18 and younger.
Shakespeare’s vision of uncompromising true love is one of the greatest stories ever told. In the vibrant city of Verona, star crossed teenage lovers follow their passion for each other against all odds in this tragic and beautiful story of eternal love. The compelling events that unfold make the story as gripping and dynamic to a contemporary audience as it was to Londoners 400 years ago.
The next installment in the UMR Campus Performing Arts Series will be a concert by Canadian band Leahy at 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 6.
