CHS Takes On Romeo & Juliet

CHS Takes On Romeo & Juliet

Antoinette Aho, Edit

The CHS drama department kicked off the year with their musical performance of A Curious Savage, for the spring season they will be performing Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

The two star crossed lovers will be played by Alina Binnie and Wyatt Hurkens.

They’ve been together in real life for over three years, so playing these roles won’t be difficult for the lovebirds. It’s their senior year and they’re happy to have the chance to play Romeo and Juliet before they leave Cordova.

A new feature for the drama department is the use of moving set pieces. Typically the set changes with the scene, processed by a closing of the curtains. But for Romeo and Juliet, much of the action will be live for the audience.

Unlike ever before, the crew and cast will be performing the play for two weekends. Mar. 28 and 29, as well as Apr. 4, and 5 at seven PM, their final performance will be at one PM on the 6 in the CHS PAC.

Students, parents, and friends all may attend the show. For students and senior citizens the ticket price is eight dollars, and for adults they will be ten.

While many students wouldn’t typically be at school on the weekend, if you happen to be by Cordova on one of the performance days, stop by to support the drama department and your theatre classmates.
