One of the most beloved romantic tragedies in the world, Romeo and Juliet is the tale of the bard’s star-crossed lovers. Romeo and Juliet fall instantly in love, only to discover that they come from feuding families.

In defiance of their families, amidst the animosity of friends and in concealment from their mentors, a young couple risks everything to be together.

PAAC is proud to present Cincinnati Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet and prove its continued relevance in the lives of young and old alike, throughout the ages.

The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is one of the few companies in the world who can boast having performed all 37 plays credited to William Shakespeare. They are entering their 24th season in Cincinnati and this marks the 8th year they have performed in Portsmouth.

Both shows will include a talk-back with the actors following the performance.
