Romeo and Juliet
June - September 2016
Building on last Summer's collaboration to bring a promenade production of Romeo and Juliet to the streets of Verona for the first time, we are currently seeking actors to perform in the English language production in July and August 2016.
June – September 2015
In 2015 we collaborated with the Teatro Nuovo-Verona, Teatro Stabile Veneto on the first promenade production of Romeo and Juliet in Verona.
The audience was guided around some of the city’s most beautiful historical locations including Juliet’s courtyard, the Cortile Ex Tribunale, the Cortile Mercato Vecchio and Teatro Nuovo.
The Italian cast of established theatre actors performed in Italian from 25 June – 27 July, and 19 August – 28 September. From the 29 July – 17 August 2015 it was performed in English, by three young actors (Jon Tozzi, Kat Ronson and Joe Parker) fresh from drama school.
David Cooper, Chief Executive of the Kings Theatre Portsmouth said “We were thrilled to have cast these three talented young actors, and see them take on their first significant roles since graduation. Their performances were entertaining, enchanting and heart-breaking at all the appropriate places. We can’t wait to welcome them Portsmouth later this year for a one-off performance.”
It was directed by Paolo Valerio, Teatro Nuovo-Verona’s artistic director who said “The ‘English cast’ was perfect and it was so nice for us, who know every word of this play, to hear it in the original language!”
