Home is where the Bard is.
Theatre Calgary, in association with The Shakespeare Company
and Hit + Myth
, is getting ready to bring a summer tradition to your screens, as we present Shakespeare by the Bow…online!
It is love at first sight for Romeo and Juliet, two teens from rival families. As their courtship blossoms, one of the greatest love stories of all time unfolds. Watch Shakespeare’s classic story of star-crossed lovers from the comfort of your home, as Alberta’s emerging artists take on this universally accessible love story, and stay true to the heart of the play, while acknowledging the times we find ourselves in.
With the appropriate restrictions on public gatherings in Calgary set through the summer, we are unable to present Shakespeare by the Bow in our traditional location on Prince’s Island Park. However, to keep a 32-year Calgary summer tradition alive, Theatre Calgary has re-imagined the experience as an approximately 50-minute long show.
The run of Romeo & Juliet has ended. We thank everyone who was able to join us online this summer!
