HOPO to present Shakespeare spoof
For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The Wisconsin Rapids Community Theatre (WRCT) summer production of HOPO’s “Romeo & Winifred” is coming to the stage Aug. 4-5.
The HOPO youth production rehearses for one week before presenting two performances, which means the kids learn their lines, blocking, and dances in a short time.
The show features 34 local youth, ages 7-18, in a spoof of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, laced with comedy and commentary.
Performances are scheduled for Aug. 4 at 7 p.m. and Aug. 5 at 2 p.m. at the WRCT, 220 Third Ave. South, Wisconsin Rapids.
To purchase tickets, visit wrctheatre.org or call 715-421-0435. Tickets may also be available at the box office one hour before each performance.
