Graycliff Presents Shakespeare on the Lake: Romeo and Juliet

September 23, 2023 @ 2:30 pm 5:00 pm

Graycliff is pleased to present Shakespeare on the Lake: Romeo and Juliet in collaboration with SUNY Fredonia’s Department of Theater and Dance, and Venture Productions. On the afternoon of Saturday, September 23, there will be a very special presentation of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet on Graycliff’s historic lakeside lawn.

The actors will make use of Wright’s design, attempting to re-create a sort of “theater in the round,” as Shakespeare would have required. Attendees will be involved in the action through the seating arrangement, but also as the actors remove the “fourth wall” to actively engage the audience. The interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic will be reimagined for this special setting with a cast and crew that includes over 50 talented people. This is sure to be a memorable afternoon not to be missed!

Doors at 2pm, show starts at 2:30pm. Run time is 2.5 hours, presented in two acts with a 15-minute intermission. No outside food/drink permitted. Beverages and snacks will be available for purchase. Please arrive early to choose your ideal seat.

Tickets for this special engagement are limited and advanced registration is required. Students may be asked to provide a valid student ID to receive the student rate.

Please note: there is no rain date for this event. In the event of inclement weather, ticket holders will be given a pair of tickets to redeem for a Standard (1-hour) Tour of Graycliff on a date of their choosing and a modified and brief in-door happening will be offered the afternoon of September 23.
