The Hawkes Bay Youth Theatre are delighted to present 'Romeo and Juliet' by William Shakespeare, script adapted by former Australian Shakespeare company director and actor, Phil Sumner, directed by Peter Cottrell and Champa Maciel. With Costumes by Angela Elliott, the show will feature physical theatre and projected images.
HaBYT is Hawke’s Bay’s own theatre training company for dedicated young theatre-makers aged from 15 to the early twenties. Since its inception, HaBYT has produced over 60 plays ranging from the classics to contemporary New Zealand theatre.
HaBYT’s aim is to teach advanced drama skills through its year round programme of productions, workshops and exposure to professional theatre locally and further afield. Admission to the training company is by audition.
HaBYT's Romeo and Juliet is set in a time when climate change is biting but civilization remains relatively intact, however the edges are fraying.
