Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
When: August 3-13, 2023
Where: Lowell Observatory, under the Festival Tent
Address: 1400 W Mars Hill Rd, Flagstaff, AZ
This summer, Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival presents two of Shakespeare’s most popular plays: Twelfth Night and Romeo and Juliet. Join us on the campus of Lowell Observatory under our festival tent for Shakespeare under the stars!
Romeo and Juliet is the infamous story of two “star-crossed lovers,” children of two dueling families in Verona. When Romeo meets his Juliet, they will stop at nothing to be together despite the danger it presents. A tale of love, family, grudges, and innocence, this romantic classic will have you misty-eyed, remembering what it felt like the first time you fell in love.
Both plays are directed by renowned Shakespeare director Jim Warren, founding Artistic Director of the American Shakespeare Center, and include a dynamic, professional company of actors and artists from all over Arizona and the country.
The shows stagger in performances! Twelfth Night opens first and runs July 28-August 6. Romeo and Juliet opens second and runs August 3-13. Each show will have a Pay-What-You-Will Preview the night before opening. On the overlapping weekend, the shows will switch off nightly.
