Romeo and Juliet Takes Over Tempest Theatre

Watch the video here.

Student workers in the theatre department are getting ready for the production of Romeo and Juliet that opens on October 31.

Tempest theatre has been a home to students, professors, actors, and actresses since its construction. Student workers have grabbed their safety glasses and got to work for the upcoming production of Romeo and Juliet.

Dr. Richard Wolf-Spencer oversees the student workers to make sure they do the job right. He’s the Technical Director for the Tempest Theatre and also will direct occasionally.

“Student workers help with the set construction, hanging lights, hanging speakers, running cables, painting the scenery,” said Wolf-Spencer.

Besides getting paid on the job, students can also see their work once the production is finished, around the shop. And you might want to see this next production as it’s not your typical Romeo and Juliet that you know. It rather takes an unusual twist.

Opening night is October 31, at 8 pm. It runs through November 10. Go to the box office for more details on dates and times. You can get into a performance for free by volunteering to be an usher. To do this, contact Dr. Michael Swanson or contact the box office.
