A timely update to a Shakespearean classic will be staged as Crossroads Repertory Theatre presents “Romeo and Juliet” starting June 28 at Indiana State University.

It’s 2032 Verona, Ohio: The Capulets and the Montagues have been feuding as long as anyone can remember, and there is always the threat of violence. But this time it’s not just a family fight, said director and Indiana State alumna Lauren Morris, ’01. It’s a global conflict that has caused death and destruction and left people deeply scarred.

“It’s about ‘the other.’ It’s about us versus them. We live in a time when that feeling is very, very real and very, very personal and very, very dangerous,” Morris said. “Romeo and Juliet is a great lens through which to look at that.”
“Romeo and Juliet” runs at 7:30 p.m. June 28-29, July 11-12 and 3 p.m. June 29-30 at New Theater on the Indiana State campus.

Flex passes of four tickets, which are good for any show, are $64 each, and single-production tickets are $16-20 for general admission. For more information about this summer’s season or to buy tickets, go to or call the box office at 812-237-3333.
