What If Romeo & Juliet...

Montreal's DynamO Théâtre returns to YPT with timeless masterpiece reinterpreted through acrobatic movement in What If Romeo & Juliet...

Young People's Theatre (YPT) welcomes back the exuberantly physical DynamO Théâtre with a unique take on Shakespeare's timeless classic. What If Romeo & Juliet... explores how Romeo & Juliet might have ended differently. Would alternative choices have altered the fatal outcomes of rivalry and prejudice? What if Romeo & Juliet... will be presented on the Mainstage from October 10th to 19th.

This engaging reinterpretation of Shakespeare's most famous love story exemplifies YPT's season theme: the spirited motivation of young people to change the world around them. This engaging production is a perfect representation of that, conveyed in this case through stunning acrobatic movement.

What If Romeo & Juliet... is Created and Directed by Jackie Gosselin, performed by Rosalie Dell'Aniello, Jérémie Earp, Agathe Foucault, and Rémy Savard, with Shakespeare's voice by Lucien Bergeron.

The creative team includes Set and Costume Designer Pierre-Étienne Locas; Lighting Designer Martin Sirois; Composer and Soundscape Designer Pierre Guy Blanchard; Assistant Director Audrey Blouin; Fight Designer Jean-François Gagnon; Acrobatic Movement Designer Hugues Sarra-Bournet; Make-up Designer Suzanne Trépanier; Voice Coach Marie-Lise Hétu; Stage Manager Marie-Chantal Bonin.
