Royal West Academy presents ‘Romeo & Juliet’

The Bardolators, a group of Royal West Academy students, directed by Doug Floen will be presenting William Shakespeare’s classic ‘Romeo and Juliet’ between November 2-4, 2016.

The Bardolators are Royal West Academy’s Shakespeare troupe composed of grade 8 -11 thespians who enthusiastically studied Shakespeare’s classic play “Romeo and Juliet” in anticipation of their upcoming shows. The students have devoted many hours of rehearsals under the direction of Douglas Floen, their long-time Artistic Director and founder of the group, and their love of the Bard shines through in their captivating performances. The group is also assisted by retired teacher Sidney Westlake and English teacher Ms. Gloria Koyounian.

‘Romeo and Juliet’ is one of the Bard’s most popular romantic tragedies. A long feud between the Montague and the Capulet families disrupts the city of Verona and causes tragic results for Romeo and Juliet. Revenge, love, and a secret marriage force the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly - and fate pushes them to a tragic end.

Regular performances will run on Wednesday, November 2 and Thursday, November 3 at 7 p.m. in the Royal West auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors/students.

There will also be a Wine & Cheese Fundraiser Event on Friday, November 4th beginning at 6:15pm, followed by a 7pm performance. Friday night tickets are $15. Tickets can be purchased at the door.

Royal West is located at 189 Easton Avenue, Montreal West.
