Audition for Romeo and Juliet 2020

The scene is set – a peaceful Sunday morning in Verona, Italy, but the two leading families – the Montagues and Capulets - are poised for yet another fight.

Caught up in this long-running feud are Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. Will they overcome the prejudices of their parents and fall in love across the divide?

Next summer, Brownsea Open Air Theatre will present this simple story of two young people, in a dream ‘bubble of love’ who set their faces against the hatred and division of their elders and by their deaths bring harmony to their divided world.

Come and help us create the sights, sounds, passion and romance of the familiar tale. It will be a summer to remember!
