Imagine falling in love with your mortal enemy? Now imagine you are a 13-year-old girl trapped in a violent society dominated by strong men.
Would you risk everything to be with your new love?
This Peak to Peak Players production features the finest young actors from Denver’s metro area, including 17-year-old Grace Pouliot as Juliet and 23-year-old Chris Van Winkle as the lovesick Romeo.
The cast also include Tara Rose Kelso, as Mercutio, and Kate Parkin as Lady Capulet. Parkin and Kelso were seen recently in the critically acclaimed production of Wolves at the Boulder Ensemble Theater Company.
