Stratford: Sidewalk Scenes’ production of “Romeo and Juliet” is held over to August 30
Sunday, July 26, 2020
An ingenious 75 minute adaptation of Romeo & Juliet, playing Thursday nights in the covered parking garage at The Bruce Hotel in Stratford is completely sold out until August 20th.
The Artistic Team of Sidewalk Scenes, in consultation with The Bruce Hotel have decided to HOLD OVER this wildly successful production by adding SIX MORE PERFORMANCES Aug.25 - Aug. 30, 2020 at 8pm.
“...an ingenious, thoughtful production with more insight than is often found in fully fledged productions.” ~ Christopher Hoile, stage‑door.com
Previously conceived as a live, drive-in-style theatre, the hold-over week will dispense entirely with cars and instead, 50 socially distanced chairs will transform The Bruce Parkade into Stratford’s first pandemic-sensitive, covered, outdoor performance venue.
“Playing in the covered parking garage has been surprisingly enjoyable. The temperature is at least 5° cooler than the outdoors, the acoustics are decent, and we can’t get rained out. There is always a breeze moving through, so patrons feel comfortable.” ~ Rebecca Northan
Patrons will be asked COVID screening questions on arrival. For everyone’s safety and comfort, masks are mandatory for audience members for the duration of the 75 minute performance.
Tickets are $30 each.
Patrons also have the option of a three course, Pre-Show Dinner Package add-on prepared by Chef Brandon of The Bruce Hotel, and/or an overnight package which includes dinner, ticket to show, and breakfast (see website for details).
Individual tickets: $30/person
Dinner + Show: $80/person
Overnight package: see website www.thebruce.ca
