B-UHS Theatre to present punk-rock, fantastical rendition of ‘Romeo & Juliet’ May 7-8

BUCKHANNON — “These violent delights have violent ends, and in their triumph die like fire and powder, which as they kiss, consume.”

Buckhannon-Upshur High School Theatre members are proud to present their production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. B-U’s version draws inspiration from “Punk-Upon-Avon” which mixes modern punk-rock & fantasy with historical Elizabethan aesthetics.

Song and dance will accompany the play to help illustrate the story of the two star-crossed lovers who do whatever they can to stay together in a world that wants them apart. Join the B-U troupe as they perform Romeo and Juliet on Saturday, May 7 at 7 p.m. or Sunday, May 8 at 3 p.m. for the matinee.

The show will take place in the B-UHS auditorium. Tickets will be available at the door and will be $5 a seat.
