William Shakespeare's


Romeo & Juliet

A classic love story set in a classic era of the late 1960's and early 1970's: A time when the counter culture of Disco and Funk rebelled against the popular culture of American Folk and Rock & Roll. So sets the stage for Romeo and Juliet, who rebel against the wishes of their families and their established order to discover true love.

Come see how the music and style of this era reflect the tender rebellious passions of
these star crossed lovers and examine exactly how far would you go for true love?

Our 3rd Annual

Summer Shakespeare Show

Julius Caesar

Our Vision

The year 2026, in the face of multiple terrorist attacks and its share of natural disasters, New York will become the center of global controversy. Tired of being the scapegoat for the rest of the United States, New York, under the leadership of its last official Mayor, Pompeii, fought to become its own sovereign nation. Julius Caesar, the Don to whom all Don's paid their respect did just as his Italian ancestors did when their country came under foreign rule: He took the power back.
