The Loras Players, the theatre production arm of Loras College’s School of Humanities & Education, present Romeo & Juliet, the classic tragedy by William Shakespeare, adapted by Diane Timmerman, Thursday–Saturday, February 29–March 2 at 7:30 p.m.

In Verona, rival houses of Capulet and Montague have a longstanding feud. The Bard’s famous tragedy of star-crossed lovers is filled with all the passion of young love. Wit and beauty dance with resentment and romance. The Loras Players stage a colorful, anachronistic, and fast-paced production, providing youthful playfulness, humor and action that careens to a tragic end.

Established in 1910, the Loras Players are the oldest, continuously-operating theatre troupe west of the Mississippi! Currently in its 114th season, students of all majors get hands-on, practical experience in this multi-disciplinary extracurricular program. While exploring the intellectual pursuits of aesthetics, narrative, communication, visual arts and performance, students develop the skills necessary to captivate and inspire an audience on the frontier of storytelling and prepare to undertake an increasingly non-routine future with social intelligence, complex critical thinking and creative problem solving.

Romeo & Juliet runs Thursday–Saturday, February 29–March 2 at 7:30 p.m. in St. Joseph Auditorium, Hoffmann Hall on the Loras College campus. General admission is $10; Loras-affiliated admission is $5-10 suggested donation.
