Nothing tragic about this rock ’n roll version of our best-selling play with the same name. Shakespeare’s story of teenage lovers finds new energy in this modern idiom with rap and rock ’n roll music. Even the feuding families, the DeCapitates and the Mountainviews, become good friends. The Bard’s classic lines are translated into teenage slang within an unpredictable situation comedy. Nothing is sacred. It’s the same love-at-first-sight tale, but Romeo and Julie’s presumed elopement turns out to be nothing more than puppy love. Includes four songs: "Rock, Rock Into Music," "The Greatest," "My Romeo," "Marriage Rap" and one reprise. The actors create their own scenery. Non-stop action. Easy to stage anywhere.
