Get ready for a twist on a classic, as “Romeo and Juliet Out West” will take the stage on Friday and Saturday, July 21 and 22.
A hilarious Wild West version of Romeo and Juliet, the production is the next in the summer series at Hutton’s Hamlet, 132 W. G St., Oakdale.
Romeo Earp crashes the Oakley’s Harvest Festival, and it’s love at first sight when he spies Juliet Oakley.
The only problem is that Earps and Oakleys are sworn enemies. How will Juliet tell her dad that she’s fallen in love with a boy he hates worse than burnt cornbread, and how will she ward off Deputy Martin who already intends to marry up with her? To make matters worse, Romeo accidentally kills Juliet’s cousin, and is banished from Possum Trot.
Still wantin’ to marry Romeo, Juliet drinks from a bottle labeled “Almost Poison,” despite Preacher Lawrence’s advice, “If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.”
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for 12 and under. Call for times, 209-848-1216.
