DRAMA CLUB PRESS RELEASE!
ROMEO TO GO
by Jonathon Rand
Directed by Andrew Young
Curtain Rises for one Performance Only Friday April 20, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the Eitel Theater
ADMISSION IS FREE
The KRHS Drama Club cordially invites the Kingsway schools and the surrounding community to its presentation of “Romeo to Go”, a short comedy by Jonathon Rand, directed by faculty member Andrew Young.
“Romeo to Go” is for theater lovers of all ages. Set in a high school on the first day of school, drama students learn that they will present William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. At first the students are excited to do this greatest of Shakespeare’s works, but soon discover that they must rehearse THEN PERFORM the entire love story in 30 minutes. Under the direction of the loony though endearing Mrs. Gunnysack, the students must pull together the fastest, cleanest, lowest-budget rendition of Romeo &Juliet the world has ever seen complete with makeshift balcony, interpretive dance fight sequences and an Elizabethan hip-hop dance party that would make P. Diddy shake his tail feather with Shakespearean pride.
The curtain for “Romeo to Go” rises in the Eitel Theater on April 20, 2018 at 6:30 pm for one performance only.
Parents are encouraged to bring their children to this hilarious and fun-filled play of love and joy.
ADMISSION IS FREE but any donations to support Kingsway Theater will be most welcomed and much appreciated.
The cast includes Anna Doyle, Ariana Mendez, Dustin Marino, Gab Velez, Gabi Valez, Jack Fitzpatrick, Jake Lang, Jamilynne McCabe,
Kali Poole, Kerry O’Connor, Liam Wilkins, Lydia Riddell, Madison DeSantis, Marcus Rodriguez, Marcus Rodriguez, Meghan Johnson,
Michael Alberta, Nicoletta Murial, Veronica Rodriguez, and Victoria Nelson.
The production Stage Manager is Ayana Harris and Sound Designer is Colleen Mooney.
For additional information on “Romeo to Go”, please email
Andrew Young firstname.lastname@example.org
