Star-crossed lovers in OPHS play

Oak Park High School will present William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, “Romeo and Juliet,” at the OPHS Performing Arts Pavilion, 899 N. Kanan Road.

Showtimes are 7 p.m. Thurs. through Sat., Dec. 3 to 5, with a 2 p.m. matinee Dec. 5

In the play, a long feud between the Montague and Capulet families disrupts the city of Verona and causes tragic results for young Romeo and Juliet.

Revenge, love, and a secret marriage force the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly, and fate causes devastation for both families.

The play is directed by OPHS English teacher Don Enoch, along with assistant direction by OPHS senior Christine Hill.

The show is produced by the Oak Park Performing Arts Alliance.

The student cast features seniors Nick Singley as Romeo, and Kayla Gorenstein and Jenna Kealer double cast as Juliet.

The set construction and tech is provided by the OPHS stage crew under the leadership of senior Claire Matulis and junior Sohrob Keynejad.

Future productions are “Mary Poppins” March 10 to 12 and a student Spotlight Production April 21 to 23.

The 2013 OPHS production of “Les Miserables” was the recipient of the Jerry Herman High School Musical Theatre Award for Best Music.
