Romeo & Juliet is directed by Lori Ann DeLappe-Grondin and our fights will be choreographed by Jes Gonzales. 

Romeo & Juliet is the final production in our Creative Economy Grant Project, awarded to Lori Ann and the company to fund some additional performances this year. We expanded our offerings over the summer to include a Monday night performance and two lunch time performances of Much Ado About Nothing. We will continue that tradition with a Monday night offering of R & J Fremont Park on Sept. 17 at 5:30pm. Our regular performances will be Sept. 14 – 16 at 5:30pm in Fremont Park. All performances are free and donations are gladly accepted. Click here to donate.
