Starting February 23rd, the Northern Illinois University School of Theatre and Dance will be performing one of the most timeless and famous pieces of literature in history, William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. This production will explore a contemporary style mixed with the classic heartbreaking love story.

“I think it is as vital now as it was when it was written,” says Richard Raether, guest director for this production. Raether is currently the Artistic Director at the Artists’ Ensemble Theatre in Rockford, IL.

This classic show tells the story of a pair of teenagers struck by love at first sight. However, when family rivalries interfere, the couple is pushed to give the ultimate sacrifice in order to protect their sacred vows.
