Acme Theatre Company opens its 33rd season with “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare.
The familiar story takes place on the streets of Verona, Italy, as the Montagues and Capulets struggle for power in the government, the board room and the marketplace.
Acme Theatre Company’s production is set in a contemporary, black-and-white world and will feature two casts — one traditionally gendered cast and one all-female cast.
There will be eight performances — four with each cast — at the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School, 315 E. 14th St.
The all-female cast performs at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2; 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 4; and 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10.
The traditional cast performs at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3; Thursday and Friday, Aug. 8-9; and at 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11.
