Gannon University's Schuster Theatre is proud to present the 2014 Shakespeare Summer Nights' productions of Romeo and Juliet and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.
Romeo and Juliet (Directed by Rev. Shawn Clerkin) - This version of Romeo and Juliet, adapted from Shakespeare by Rev. Shawn Clerkin, focuses on the star-crossed lovers and the forces that work against their happiness. Using only four performers (Romeo, Juliet, and two additional performers who play a myriad of roles), this production brings out the romance and the tragedy in an unconventional telling of one of the Bard’s most famous plays. This marks the first time SSN has repeated a play (having produced Romeo and Juliet ten years ago!), but with a story as beloved as this, it is a good time to rekindle the flames of love and draw the tears of sadness.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (Directed by Jax Kubiak) - Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eve view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.
