2015 Summer Camps
Camp Ages Rehearsal
Dates/Times
Final Performance
Romeo and Winifred — A Tragical Comedy
Instructor: Robyn Berg

This hilarious spoof turns Shakespeare upside down and shakes things up with a stage full of zany modern characters. It is modern-day New York City, where the high-end Montague’s Department store and the cheapo Capulet’s Discount Mart — rival clothing stores — meet in the street to trade vicious insults. Words are their daggers, wielded with such finesse and skill that you could die laughing! When Romeo and Winifred, the heirs to these two retail empires, fall in love, well... you know the rest. But this play has a happy ending! “Humph. Call yourself a tragedy,” exclaims Oregano at the end of the show, disappointed to find nobody has died. With pie fights instead of duels, a nurse obsessed with paper cuts, you’ll forget the story ever had anything to do with tragedy!
