“Romeo and Juliet” is among Shakespeare’s most widely performed plays. The first half is a hilarious comedy and the second half is a devastating tragedy. The play follows the story of a young man and woman who long to be together, despite their families’ vicious feud. “Romeo and Juliet” evokes the promise of a deep and satisfying love felt in youth – a promise that a violent and unfeeling society makes sure is never kept.

The Theatre Arts Program at The University of Akron equips undergraduate and graduate students with a broad knowledge of theatre arts and fundamental practical skills in order to prepare them to address the emerging issues and challenges of the theatre profession and a diverse and vibrant society. The Theatre Arts Program provides high quality educational and artistic experiences that enhance the cultural lives of all students at The University of Akron, as well as the residents of the greater Akron community and the Northeast Ohio region.
