Queen Theatre announced that performances of Romeo & Juliet will be held February 10-12, with a special performance on February 14, at The Imperial Theatre in Sugar Land Town Square.
“Forget the over-priced roses and the been-there-done-that chocolates,” said Queen Theatre’s Executive Director, Erika Waldorf. “Treat your sweetie – and yourself – to live theatre for Valentine’s Day. You’ve never seen Romeo & Juliet quite like this; true to the Bard’s original masterpiece but with some fun modern-day twists. And with tickets priced at just $15 a ticket, you can afford dinner and a bottle of wine before the show, too.”
2012 marks Queen Theatre’s first annual Valentine’s weekend run of Romeo & Juliet. Fans of this classic story of star-crossed lovers will find much to love in Queen’s production, but some surprise updates to the tale will delight everyone.
Queen Theatre has also created a VIP experience, available to a very small number of people for each performance, which includes special seating, wine, snacks, and a photo on stage to commemorate the evening. Anyone with something extra-special to celebrate – or to propose – can contact Queen Theatre to find out how to make the evening unforgettable.
Performances are Friday, February 10 and Saturday the 11th at 8 p.m.; Sunday the 12th at 5 p.m., and Tuesday, February 14 at 8 p.m. All shows are at The Imperial Theatre. Visit www.queentheatre.org for ticketing information. Student pricing is available.
