New Theatre's 2005/2006 Summer Season

William Shakespeare's

Romeo and Juliet June 9 - July 3 The Merchant of Venice July 7 - 31

Macbeth August 4 - 28

Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 8 p.m, Sundays at 1 p.m.

In Romeo and Juliet, the star-crossed lovers of Shakespeare's
immortal play seek happiness despite the climate of violence created
by their warring families. It is 1810, and Napoleon rules the
civilized world, while in Verona, Italy hatred rules. In The
Merchant of Venice, Antonio finds his life in peril over an unpaid
debt. His fate rests in the hands of Portia, a beautiful young woman
who must convince the unrelenting moneylender Shylock to spare
Antonio. Deception and caustic wit reign in this supreme dramatic-
comic story, set in our production in Mussolini's Italy in 1930.
Magic and evil play havoc with the fates of men in Macbeth,
Shakespeare's astounding tale about men, women and vaulting ambition
in the moors of Scotland.
