Shakespeare’s famous tale of star-crossed lovers gets a new twist this summer!  Set in the juxtaposing worlds of Great Gatsby-esque glamour of weath and privilege versus the poverty and grime of Appalachian life, the Capulets and the Montagues come to blows as the lovers’ forbidden passion blooms.  Contemporary bands and classic folk music add to the story-telling as the cast sings through beautiful arrangements of Fun., The Civil Wars, Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons, The Dave Matthews Band, and more.
