The Actors' Gang has added one extra weekend to its popular, free family Shakespeare in the Park season. Romeo and Juliet: Monsters in Love is a high-energy, silly romp based on Shakespeare's play with a similar title. The raucous Commedia del Arte style makes the story accessible even to the very young, and yet packed with enough wit to entertain adults as well.
Note that this version has a happy ending that might not work for theatrical purists but is a big hit with the kids - as is the free popsicle party after the show.
Free parking is available in the city lot next to Trader Joe's. Bring blankets or chairs.
