Romeo & Juliet

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Elena Araoz
Jun 1 — Jun 24, 2018
Shakespeare Glen, Forest Park

Our 2018 production of Romeo & Juliet was directed by Elena Araoz, a rising star in American Theatre. Visit Elena’s website.

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to bring this great love story to life in such an incredibly iconic setting in St. Louis’ beloved Forest Park,” Araoz said. “Working outdoors in the park presents so many opportunities for creativity; it really is an honor to be able to immerse myself in this project.”

Araoz will be joined by a St. Louis-based creative team, including Dottie Marshall Englis (Costumes), Margery and Peter Spack (Scenic Designers), John Wylie (Lighting), Rusty Wandall (Sound), Paul Dennhardt (Fight Choreographer), and Joanna Battles (Voice & Text), all of whom worked on previous Festival productions.
