A night at the theatre to benefit Basic Rights Oregon!
March 15, 2012 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| $5
Bag & Baggage Productions, Hillsboro’s resident professional theatre, is proud to partner with Basic Rights Oregon for an evening of provocative Shakespeare! Join us on Thursday, March 15th at 7:30pm at the beautiful Venetian Theatre (253 East Main Street) in downtown Hillsboro for a thrilling, exciting new production of Joe Calarco’s “Shakespeare’s R&J” $5 from every ticket purchased will be donated back to Basic Rights Oregon!
This adaptation tells the tale of four students living in a conservative boarding school who engage in a clandestine reading of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet they find hidden under the floorboards of the chapel. Their school has banned Shakespeare for fear it will “enflame the passions” and the young men suddenly find themselves plunged into this passionate and rebellious story, living out their own fears, joys, and youthful awakenings right alongside Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers.
More information and tickets are available online at www.bagnbaggage.org or by calling the Venetian Theatre box office at 503-345-9590.
