Synopsis: Romeo meets Jules in modern day at Burleigh Pavillion, with beautiful, hilarious rhymes to replace the old shakespearean language. Think the window scene with a barking dog, bushes and some hilarious text messages.  This is a modern take on a classic and will for sure keep your audience entertained.   There is great use of chorus, spotlight monologues, dancing & singing - this script really has it all.  Modern day jokes and even an appearance from DJ Cally and Scomo.  

Hilarious and witty, a modern day take on Romeo & Juliet.  Excellent for a year 9-12 drama whole class play, drama club, extra curricular or any senior drama class - especially Drama in Practice 11 & 12.
