It is not just a classic love story—it is the greatest love story of all time. Romeo and Juliet meet at a masked ball, not knowing the danger of their instant and passionate love. When their families’ ancient and bitter feud destroys what the two rash lovers have created, the tragedy is no less poignant for the centuries it has seen.

Wake

In Shakespeare's The Tempest, the spirit Ariel conjures up a violent storm that leaves the people of Milan shipwrecked on a remote island. A revenge plot ensues, mixed with a love story and themes of forgiveness and hope. In Buntport's version, which they bill as "a corruption" of the original, the storm never happens, leaving the island's inhabitants stuck waiting for the plot to begin. Don't Miss: The opening and closing night performances include a reception with cocktails and desserts.
