The Midland Center for the Arts (MCFTA) is proud to present Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as performed by Actors From the London Stage. This group is one of the oldest Shakespearian touring companies in the world, and will appear in Midland's very own Center for the Arts on February 4, 5, and 6, 2010. Each presentation begins at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $25.00 for adults and $16.00 for children.
These performances are proudly supported by the National Endowment for the Arts through their funding of Arts Midwest, a program that provides funding to arts groups to further the growth and support of worthy art causes.
The cast of Romeo and Juliet is small, hosting only five people, and is self-directed. They make the story come to life through their acting and their dialogue, preferring minimal use of set (including backdrops, props, etc.) and costumes. This gives this story an intimate feel and helps the audience connect with each character more thoroughly.
