Montana Western drama students present Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet"

“Romeo and Juliet,” William Shakespeare's story of two star-crossed teenagers, is brought to life by students of the University of Montana Western.  

It plays in the Beier Auditorium on Feb. 19-23.  The beauty, recklessness, and horror of this most-famous of plays is captured in breathtaking language, period costumes, a multi-level metal set and young men who duel to their deaths. 

On Feb. 19-21, shows begin at 7:30 p.m, and on Feb. 22 at 3:30 p.m. General admission is $8, and students of all ages are $5. On Feb. 23, there will be a matinee for public schools, starting at 9:30 a.m., and tickets for youth are $2. The play is an hour and 45 minutes long.  

"Romeo and Juliet" was written by Shakespeare early in his career and is among his most popular plays. The tragedy focuses on two teenagers in love who are kept apart by their feuding families. The play has been adapted many times for film, stage and opera.
