Romeo and Juliet

In our first year of Shakespeare Comes to (716), we wrote a modern adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, mixing urban slang with Shakespeare's impeccable Elizabethan English.   A blaring car horn and slam of brakes, the stage lights break open onto two teenage boys krump dancing.  For the next ninety minutes, the packed audience of over 400 people watched in expectation as two feuding high schools and two "star-crossed" lovers raced towards their fates.
