Just popping in on a *very* busy theater month with this amazing deal for tickets to Romeo and Juliet at the Guthrie! There will be a special 1 p.m. matinee on Sunday, October 8 where all tickets are $10. This is definitely a deal to take advantage of; mainstage tickets normally run from $20 to $54 per pop for this show.

This event is part of the Guthrie's 19th Annual Shakespeare Classic, whcih was established in 1999 to help encourage more young people to attend these shows. There will also be a meet and greet with the cast in the lobby after the performance; this is a definite win-win-win!

For more information about the show itself (if you really don't know.... is that even possible?), check out the press release:

It’s a story so well-known it scarcely needs an introduction, yet surprisingly the Guthrie has produced it just twice before. Set in Verona where the rival houses of Capulet and Montague have had a long-standing feud, Romeo and Juliet is Shakespeare’s famous tragedy of star-crossed lovers, filled with all the passion of young love. Underscored by ingenious wit and astonishing beauty, the play pits the bitterness of resentment against the intensity of romance.

Tickets to the popular annual event are just $10, and every order must have at least one but no more than two adults for every young person. Tickets for the Shakespeare Classic are available through the Guthrie Box Office at 612.377.2224 or toll-free at 877.44.STAGE. This performance is not available for purchase online.
