Prairie High School Students Take the Stage for 'Romeo and Juliet'
April 16, 2015
Prairie High School Drama Club's production of William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" opens April 23. Directed by Claire Verity and with costume designs by Terry Maupin, the production will take place in the Prairie High School Auditorium.
"Romeo and Juliet" is William Shakespeare's classic tragedy about the forbidden romance of two teenagers from feuding families. Acting on impulse and emotion, without the wisdom that comes with age and experience, they marry in secret. A string of fateful events lead to their untimely deaths, ultimately teaching their families a most difficult lesson. Prairie's production features the traditional story in a non-traditional, styled stage setting and costumes.
The play runs April 23-25, April 30, and May 1-2 at the school, 11311 NE 119th St., Vancouver. Performances begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale at www.seatyourself.biz/prairiehighschool and are $8 for adults and $6 for students with ASB and senior citizens.
