At a slumber party, a group of teenage girls struggles to prepare for an exam on Romeo & Juliet. When the boys show up, their dry recitations quickly evolve into play-acting, and as they all get swept up in the story, their play takes flight into a full-blown production! Using only the original text, this zany and youthful 90-minute adaptation breathes new life into one of the Bard’s most well-loved plays.
Classic Repertory Company (CRC) is New Repertory Theatre’s flagship educational outreach program, bringing theatrical experiences to schools, senior centers, universities, summer camps, and presenting organizations throughout New England. CRC produces streamlined, inventive, original 90-minute adaptations of Shakespeare and classic novels. We seek not only to entertain, but to create a space for critical thinking, risk-taking, conversation, and shared experience. Every performance is accompanied by comprehensive study guides, a pre-show introduction, and a post-show discussion with the actors. We also offer workshops that may be booked alongside the performance, or as a stand-alone experience
