ROMEO & JULIET: Friday, September 14, 2018, 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM
When you’re a teenager, it’s easy to fall in love. Without adult guidance, though, it’s easy to make a mess of it. St. X’s streamlined, 90-minute production of this classic tale is set in Renaissance Italy, but its story speaks to young people of today. This show is recommended for students in grades 5 and up.
WEST SIDE STORY: Friday, March 15, 2019, 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM
In one of the most important and powerful musicals of all time, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time. This show is recommended for students in grades 5 and up. It will last two hours.
