Valentine’s Day is just round the corner on 14 Feb 2014. Have you gotten anything planned for your special someone?
Why not treat him or her to a romantic theatrical performance?
After the success of Glass Anatomy The Musical in May 2013, Toy Factory is proud to present Romeo & Juliet, a tragedy of star-crossed lovers who are determined to be together, even in death. While this is one of the most frequently performed Shakespearean plays and has evoked emotions from the audiences time after time, this tale of star-crossed lovers is set to be presented in a trendy and bold manner in this particular version:
Toy Factory’s Romeo & Juliet is directed by Nell Ng, one of Kuala Lumpur’s most notable directors. Benjamin Kheng, singer/musician from the band, Sam Willows, stars as Romeo, alongside Theresa Wee-Yenko, playing Juliet in her professional theatre debut.
Making up the rest of the cast are Caleb Goh, Dwayne Tan, Josephine Tan, Edward Choy, Andrew Mowatt, Timothy Wan, Marc Valentine, Ethel Yap, Daphne Quah, Andy Pang and Nelson Clemente.
In aristocratic Verona, a fateful meeting at a ball sees tempestuous young Romeo and wide-eyed Juliet falling in love at first sight… but bliss abruptly transforms to despair upon the realisation that their families are locked in bloody feud. They find brief solace in an oath of eternal love and a secret wedding, until Juliet’s beloved, brash cousin Tybalt incites a duel with Romeo, leading to deaths on both sides, including Tybalt’s own. Romeo is exiled from Verona, and Juliet is forcibly engaged to the charming Count Paris. Will the star-crossed sweethearts find love at last, or will their world finally tear them apart?
This production will be running at Drama Centre Theatre from 13 – 23 February 2014. Public ticket sales started from 1 December 2013. More details are available via the official Toy Factory website.
