A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite this, and the fact that Juliet has been promised to another, they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between their families, and tragedy begins to unfold. In this six-person cast and one hour long adaptation by Katy Brown, the movement from love at first sight to the lovers’ final union is unique to say the least.

Savannah Stage Company takes this much-loved musical and creates a brave and imaginative interpretation like none other. This bold retelling puts Dorothy in the middle of an attic where she greets the band of characters that help her journey down a path that is filled with mishaps and detours. This is the script and score everyone knows and loves, but Savannah Stage Company surrounds the material with simplistic actor-driven sound effects, found objects that are molded into whimsical props, and brave storytelling that explores relationships in a deeper way, all with only 10 actors.
