Romeo & Juliet
“Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love…”
Two star-crossed youths meet, fall for each other and meet their tragic ends over the course of three hot, violent days. Full of gorgeous poetry and devastating ferocity, Shakespeare’s timeless story of the dazzling beauty of love and the terrible power of hate comes alive in a film version of a reading where the extraordinary language of the text takes precedence.

It's Greek to Me
What do you actually know about Greek theatre? For this filmed project, students learned the actual history of Greek Theatre, discovering that the Greeks were not, in fact, the first people to "do theatre." Students selected scenes and monologues from the Oedipus cycle and performed those selections along with personal responses (in creative form) that examine their own connection to or disconnection from the material. Performers speak back to Sophocles from 2020, examining the lasting legacy of the great myth of Greek theatre. The film includes cast members performing both their Greek selections and their own creative responses.
This production contains some mature content.RELEASE DATE: Thursday, March 25, 2021 - 7:00pm
