Romeo And Juliet

Romeo and Juliet

Mirror Staff HFCC Mirror News

On April 7 one of the greatest love stories ever told hits our stage for the first time as members of the Henry Ford Community College theatre department, directed by Gerry Dzublinski, will perform Romeo and Juliet. This is a classic tale of two lovers who fall in love at first sight and ultimately take their lives due to their families’ hate for one another. Romeo and Juliet demonstrates how society in any given era can affect relationships, not only between lovers but between people, in general as well.

Romeo and Juliet: The After Party

Ramzi Khouz Mirror News May 2011

As the show closed with a sold out crowd of April 17, misery soon struck the hearts of the crew of Romeo and Juliet. In theatre, one of the things that people learn is how to work in an “ensemble.” That is theatre term for working as a group, but becoming an ensemble can lead to so much more. For many of us Romeo and Juliet will quite possibly be the final show, as those departing the theatre program at HFCC will branch out to universities or professional theatres.
