Dreamcoat Fantasy Theatre
Dreamcoat Fantasy Theatre is proud to present "Romeo and Harriet", on Thursday April 25th & Friday April 26th, 7:00 p.m. and Saturday April 27th 1:00 p.m. matinee, at West Ferris S.S. theatre.
Under the direction of Michelina Beam and choreography by Krysten Griffith, with vocal direction by Roxey Size 51 children from grades 3 – 8 have been rehearsing at West Ferris S.S. since mid Feb to present this show.
This hilarious musical spoof puts the “shake” in Shakespeare! With the help of a group of quarreling chorus members — Oregano, Carpaccio, Risotto, Prosciutto, Antipasto, Pesto, Mayo and Romano — we get a deliciously funny spoof of Romeo and Juliet. Their comedic and intelligent commentary seasons the show with laughter galore so actors and audience alike won’t even realize they’re learning about Shakespeare! The stage is set in modern-day New York City, where clerks of the swanky Montague’s Department store and the second-rate Capulet’s Discount Mart meet in the street to trade insults. A fun, eclectic collection of musical numbers underscores all this hilarity, including a number in iambic pentameter! It would be a real tragedy to miss out on this one!
School performances are scheduled for Friday April 26th at 10:00 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. Tickets are still available for the evening and matinee performances. Tickets are $12.00 each and can be purchased at Creative Learning or at the door.
