Shakespeare for the modern age comes to Fayetteville April 20-24, as Arts One Presents debuts their fresh take on Romeo + Juliet.

The intimate 5-show run of Romeo + Juliet - one of the oldest and most cherished love stories of all time - will utilize the traditional script, but that’s likely where your familiarity with the play will end! The design and aesthetic elements of the show are presented with a reimagined, contemporary twist and a modernized musical score for a wholly new experience of the familiar favorite. Performances are taking place April 20-24, 2022 at Likewise, an adapted industrial community space in downtown Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Romeo + Juliet features a cast made up of local community members and is directed by Taylor Dolan. Romeo + Juliet was choreographed by Ozark Ballet Theatre, while DJ Dribblz and DJ Raquel (both of Northwest Arkansas) have created an updated score for the production. Set designs, costumes, and other thematic elements were also sourced from artists in the Fayetteville and NWA area.

There are two ticket options available for each performance of Romeo + Juliet. Guests can select general admission, which grants them row seating, or they can purchase a table for two which also includes two drinks. Parking for Romeo + Juliet at Likewise is available in the municipal parking deck, directly across the street from the entrance. Doors open 45 minutes prior to show time.
