All performances are FREE and begin at 7 pm, with a special “doubleheader” performance of both plays beginning at 2 pm on Sunday, August 11.

A star-crossed classic.
The cultural influence of the world’s most enduring love story can’t be denied. This story of two love-struck teenagers resonates with both young and old viewers. Everyone should experience Romeo and Juliet at least once in their lifetime; what better opportunity than on a summer evening in the park.
*Please note: The season closes with a special “doubleheader” performance on Sunday, August 11. Wooden O will perform Romeo and Juliet at 2 pm followed by Twelfth Night at 7 pm.
