For over 400 years, ROMEO and JULIET has been the love story that all other love stories are compared. The enduring tale of a young girl’s awakening to love and the harshness of life, is as relevant today as it was centuries ago.  This production, set amid ancient stones of the Scottish highlands, will explore all the elements of this tragic romance. A fresh, first love… feuding families …. tragedy and vengeance. Beauty. Sacrifice. Innocence. Love.
