Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, live at the Bradley Beach Boardwalk

This summer we are proud to announce a free live performance of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet at the Bradley Beach boardwalk.  The performance is presented by The Bradley Beach Arts Council and takes place at 7:00pm on Friday, July 21 and Saturday July 22, 2017.  You can find the live act at the Bradley Beach Boardwalk Gazebo (Ocean Avenue and 5th Avenue).  There is a rain date of Sunday July 23rd.

Romeo and Juliet is a popular tragedy written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two young star-crossed lovers.  First published in 1597, since then, the characters of Romeo and Juliet have been depicted in literature, music, dance, and theater.  Shakespeare sets the scene in Verona, Italy. When Juliet and Romeo first meet they fall in love instantly, and a story of star-crossed lovers in a complicated world proceeds to tragedy.  Their families, the Montagues and the Capulets, respectively, are implacable enemies.  In the end the cultivating story depicts the deaths of the young lovers to be hero and heroine as they ultimately restore harmony between their feuding families.  The Bradley Beach Shakespeare by the Sea performance is sure to be a popular crowd pleaser!
