New dates added to the outdoor Romeo & Juliet shows this Summer in Liverpool’s parks

24/05/2019

It’s 1783, hot air balloons are the only way to travel, Carnevale is a way of life and love is a dirty word. A rebellious girl and a sensitive boy dream of escape from patriarchy and feuding families, in fair Verona where we lay our scene.


A multi award-winning theatre company will be touring an exciting new production of Romeo and Juliet around Merseyside’s parks and gardens this summer for a tour that promises to be an indulgent feast for the senses.

Prescot-based Imaginarium Theatre will present Shakespeare’s greatest love story throughout the summer, featuring pulsing carnival rhythms merging with Italian Opera, explosive fight choreography, thrilling fire dancing, masks and spectacle, and of course a pair of star crossed lovers destined for tragically violent ends.

The summer tour will take in a host of outdoor locations across Merseyside, including Reynolds Park in Woolton, Ness Gardens, Crosby Hall, Sudley House, and many more.
