Imagine falling in love with your mortal enemy. Now imagine you are a 13-year-old girl trapped in a society dominated by strong men. Would you risk everything to be with your new love? This production features the finest young actors from Denver’s metro area, including 17-year-old Grace Pouliot as Juliet, and 23-year-old Chris Van Winkle as the lovesick Romeo. The cast also includes Tara Rose Kelso as Mercutio, and Kate Parkin as Lady Capulet.
The play also includes a cameo appearance by dancers from Boulder Ballet, performing the Colorado premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s “This Bitter Earth.” Wheeldon, the world’s foremost choreographer, is most recently known for his Tony-award winning “American in Paris” on Broadway.
