This summer, On The Edge Theatre Productions is preparing to bring Shakespeare’s classic romance, ROMEO AND JULIET to life. The production will be set in 1845 Alta California where the rancheros from Mexico are dealing with the American immigrants who’ve moved into the province. The Capulet family is a long established Hispanic family with ties to the Mexican governor, while the Montague family are a merchant family new to the region and at odds with the Capulets.

TEAMWORK IS MANDATORY
Actors not only perform but also act as crew members. Everyone is expected to be present for his/her performance evenings and participate in setting up the show.We must set-up and breakdown the set each night. It is a team effort where each person is assigned a few tasks. It’s a lot of fun!
For ROMEO AND JULIET we are looking for a diverse cast- accepting auditions from actors of all ethnicities and from ages 10 to 99.
