ROMEO and JULIET – Director: David Owen

"My only Love, sprung from my only hate”

(Act I, scene v)

It’s Mardi Gras, and youthful passions ignite in this tale of doomed lovers.  Love-sick Romeo exchanges vows with Juliet, the energetic daughter of his family’s sworn enemy.  Bound together by a holy man, they unluckily discover that escape from ancient hate is a formidable undertaking. 

“O, I am Fortune’s fool!"

(Act III, scene i)


HENRY V – Director: Thomas Usher

“No King of England, if not King of France”

(Act II, scene ii)

England’s ambitious young king seeks to confirm his godly authority by beginning a highly brazen invasion of France.  Badly out-numbered and against all odds, Henry wins the day, captures the crown and woos the heart of the French princess. 

Compelled to graphically retell the story, 3 choric guides invoke the audience to enhance this fast-moving version with their thoughts.  Performed by an energetic ensemble against the backdrop of enthusiastic live drumming.

 “O for a Muse of Fire . . . Let us on your imaginary forces work”

(Act I, scene i)
