Set against the backdrop of a hot summer at the Verona Campground, two kids from feuding families, the Montagues and the Capulets, notice each other for the first time.
With naivety and in secrecy, they put aside all their parents cannot and discover they alone can turn their households' rancour to pure love.
Falling madly for each other, Romeo and Juliet enlist the help of Friar, the campground vagabond, who weds them in a secret ceremony.
But, before Romeo and Juliet can announce their marriage, events set them on a path that tests not just their resolve and love for each other, but the very nature of life and death itself.
This trailer-park rock opera is Shakespeare's original language reworked as an innovative musical score for a new generation.
Romeo and Juliet: A Love Song, with its' contemporary and unique setting, is Shakespeare as you've never heard him.
