The Group Rep presents ROMEO AND JULIET, directed by Shira Dubrovner, produced by Patrick Burke and Janet Wood, choreographed by Stan Mazin. A fresh twist on Shakespeare’s classic tale of star-crossed lovers, set in pre-World War II, Berlin where Romeo is a German boy and Juliet is a Jewish girl. A relationship between these two would be highly forbidden, and the consequences too severe to imagine. The love story is as fresh and relevant today as it was more than 450 years ago.
The cast features the talents of Ashkhan Aref, Mark Atha, Emily Barnett, Mike Bingaman, Patrick Burke, Cheryl Crosland, Julie Davis, Kyle deCamp, Rebecca Driscoll, Grant Gunderson, Doug Haverty, Heston Horwin, Belinda Howell, Janee Hull, Sophie Lamzik, Will Maizel, Kaylena Mann, Joseph Marcelo, Skip Pipo, Sina Pooresmaeil, Bennett Saltzman, Savannah Schoenecker, Kristin Towers-Rowles and Chris Winfield.
The design and production team includes Chris Winfield (Set Design), J.Kent Inasy (Lighting Design), Cheryl Crosland (Costume Design), Steve Shaw (Sound Design), Cylan Brown (Fight Choreography), Rebecca Driscoll (Assistant Director), Bennett Saltzman (Stage Manager), John Ledley (Board Operator), Marjorie “MJ” Scott (Costume Assistant), Doug Engalla (Photographer/Videographer), and Doug Haverty art & soul design (Graphic Design).
