Time Out says
Watch the tale of Romeo and Juliet unfold under the stars at Rippon Lea
“For never was there a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”
The timeless tale of Romeo and Juliet is coming to Rippon Lea House and Gardens this March. The romance and tragedy of this classic theatrical work will come alive as the Australian Shakespeare Company celebrates the 30th anniversary of Shakespeare Under the Stars.
Not only that but the beauty of Rippon Lea House and Gardens will only enhance the experience of the play as the young players recite this story of young love, the power of family, the value of friends and the futility of hate.
Running from March 4 to 21, Romeo and Juliet is directed by Glenn Elston who brings the tensions between the Montague and Capulet families of Verona to Victoria. Shakespeare’s drama will tug at your heartstrings and might even coax out a tear or two as the feuding families unite only after the death of the star-crossed lovers (spoiler alert!).
You can pack a picnic and bring blankets to the show or order from the menu available on-site (and online). The tickets can be bought on The Australian Shakespeare Company's website and range from $25-$110. The play will run from Monday to Thursday from 7.30pm.
