For its final show of the season, Shakespeare for the Masses is presenting fan favorite Romeo and Juliet, but with a twist. In the theatrical world, everyone wants the coveted role of Juliet, but of course only one person per show gets this gem. Until now that is. Shakespeare for the Masses is known for putting new spins on the mighty English bard, including slicing and dicing his plays down to a manageable hour. This time they are giving the whole cast the opportunity to play Juliet, and the Nurse, and Mercutio, the list goes on. Think of it as musical chairs comes to the theatre, only without the music.

Showtime is at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 1, and 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 2; both shows at Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse, 24 Church street in Vineyard Haven. All shows are also free, although donations are graciously accepted.
