Nelson Summer Shakespeare presents Romeo and Juliet

Sunday 2nd February 2020

This professional production of the Bard's greatest love story, will tour outdoor venues in the Nelson Tasman region in January 2020. This special performance brings the tragic tale of the 'star-crossed lovers' into the comfort of Nelson's Theatre Royal.

Building upon the strengths of previous Summer Shakespeare seasons, highly experienced director Giles Burton has once again taken on this role, and has built a strong and professional ensemble.

What becomes of Romeo and Juliet? Will the long standing family feud between the Montagues and Capulets play out a disastrous end?

Don't miss out on the chance to see this classic love story, presented by eight of Nelson's best actors, retold in the beautiful setting of New Zealand's oldest wooden theatre.
