Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who came out to Playhouse Merced for our latest production of Romeo and Juliet!  We hope you enjoyed the new take on the story of these
two star-crossed lovers!

  • "The decision to cast older actors as Romeo and Juliet is both a bold and refreshing choice, offering a new perspective on the themes of love and conflict."

  • "They provided a fresh feeling to an all-time classic..."

  • "I honestly think it was one of my favorite Romeo and Juliet adaptations I have ever seen."

  • "...the cast's diversity shows how (they) sought to bring communities together by incorporating many ethnicities..."

  • "It gave the clear message that love can be found at any age."

Here are a few of our favorite quotes from patrons:
