Perhaps one of William Shakespeare's most well-known plays, "Romeo and Juliet" explores the story of star-crossed lovers Romeo (Marliet Martinez) and Juliet (Cassie Powell) torn between their feuding families, the Montagues and the Capulets. The play, directed by founding artistic director Erin Merritt, also features Holly Chou as Benvolio, Scarlett Hepworth as Friar Lawrence, Karen Anne Light as Tybalt and Carolyn Power as the Nurse.
"Woman's Will is sure to place its unique mark on Shakespeare's timeless tale," said Civic Arts Manager Andy Jorgensen.
Additional performances of "Romeo and Juliet" will be held across the Bay Area in Fremont, San Francisco and Oakland.
Woman's Will has previously performed productions of "Twelfth Night," "Richard III" and "As You Like It" here in Pleasanton as part of its summer performance schedule. In addition to Shakespeare, the company also performs a variety of plays from classical and well-known playwrights and will be performing "Antigone" by the Greek playwright Sophocles later this year. The troupe also runs public and private theater classes.
