“Romeo and Juliet,” the Shakespearean tragedy, will be performed by the Aquila Theatre Company on the Missouri University of Science and Technology campus this month. The performance is part of the 2015-16 Campus Performing Arts Series.
The performance will be held at 7:30 pm. Monday, Feb. 29, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, located at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
