{Giveaway} Shakespeare in the Park ~ Romeo & Juliet | Celebrating Shakespeare’s life & works 400 years on

If you’ve always hated Literature as a subject but loved reading books simply just to venture into a far faraway land without worrying over Grade A or F, you would be familiar with William Shakespeare and his works.  The tragic love story between Romeo & Juliet is perhaps the most classic story used during schools days.

Today, 400 years following the death of William Shakespeare, Singapore Repertory Theatre specially presents Romeo & Juliet as the ninth production in the Shakespeare in the Park series. Past productions from the series include The Tempest, The Merchant of Venice, Othello, Twelfth Night, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Much Ado About.

To join in on the celebrations over Shakespeare’s life and works, SRT has chosen to stage what is probably Shakespeare’s most well-loved play, which has had a profound influence on music, film, theatre and debates over the years.  For us, it will be our first Shakespeare in the Park experience and we are really excited over the opportunity.  If you have any tips to share, please tell us!

SRT’s production of Romeo & Juliet will be the biggest Shakespeare production in this part of the world in 2016. It will be a stunning contemporary production created by some of the best theatre practitioners on and off stage.

“Our production of Romeo & Juliet focuses on the breathless quality of the play, of love tragically cut off before it ever really begins. Set in a modern dystopia, our production presents a heartbreaking tale of forbidden love, fatal choices and passion bigger than life itself. Come to the park to recapture the feeling that never leaves you: first love.” – Daniel Slater, Director of Romeo & Juliet

The annual tradition of Shakespeare in the Park attracts up to 30,000 people from all walks of life and is an anchor event in the cultural calendars of many.

The young lovers will be portrayed by Thomas Pang (Tribes) and Cheryl Tan (Beauty World and Red Riding Hood), with Remesh Panicker, Shane Mardjuki and Daniel Jenkins in other leading roles.

  1. Literature was my favourite subject in school and reason why I sent my girl back to my school so that she will have the same exposure to Lit as I had. This was would perfect to bring her along!
