The journey started when we went to audition for the RSC production of Romeo and Juliet in 2018. We were incredibly lucky as 12 of our young people got a chance to be in the main production. This meant that we spent a lot of time IN stratford performing on the main stage – which was incredible.
When we came back we decided as a group that we would like to put on our own production of Romeo and Juliet in Northampton. We also decided that it would be a great idea to take the tour around to local school as they were studying Romeo and Juliet at the time.
We have been working in three casts so that as many people as possible get a chance to be on stage for the longest amount of time. The tour starts next week and we are very excited!
