Romeo and Juliet
The American Drama Group Europe has created an exciting new production of one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, Romeo and Juliet. The group has toured to over twenty countries on three continents, in venues from a plantation house in Atlanta to Windsor Castle, from major theatres in Tokyo and Berlin, to palaces in Verona and Stockholm. More locally, they have performed throughout Switzerland, including at the Château de Chillon.
They have agreed to perform Romeo and Juliet for one night only at ISL. This is an excellent chance for students to see one of the set texts from the English curriculum brought to life, and more broadly for our students to see high quality contemporary theatre without having to travel farther than school.
The tickets cost CHF 20 for students. The adult price is CHF 40, if parents would like to come. If you would like to book tickets or if you have any questions, please email me. Please note: all Year 8 to 10 students need not book tickets as they have seats already reserved – we expect all these students to attend.
Refreshments, including drinks, hotdogs and baked goods will be served before the performance and during the interval in aid of Cecily’s Fund – a grass-roots charitable foundation that supports and educates vulnerable children in Kitwe, Zambia.
We are looking forward to an engaging interpretation of this entertaining tragedy.
Jeremy Lloyd, on behalf of the ISL English Department
