Shakespeare Festival St. Louis presents Winning Juliet by Christopher Limber and Elizabeth Birkenmeier Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, April 26-May 4. “When the School Drama Department announces a production of Romeo And Juliet at Stratford High, no one expects competition for the role will end in tragedy. A new student arrives at school, and a cyber-mystery of torment and mistaken identity ensues. Julie, the new girl, is targeted at Stratford High for being strange...self-assured and bookish, fiercely honest and unstylish. Gwyneth is her immediate bully; she is set on being cast as Juliet and used to having her way at school. Julie is a sudden threat, noticeably standing a chance at winning the coveted role. There is much more to their competition than their teachers and parents can see. Beyond the school hallways, the girls play dangerous game, with consequences that seem unimaginable to their instigators. A single-sentence “status” is enough to ruin a day, and maybe a life.” The cast includes 88.1 KDHX's Chuck Lavazzi. Performances take place at the Little Theater at Clayton High School, 1 Mark Twain Circle in Clayton. For more information: http://sfstl.com.
