What’s a Mobile Shakespearience™?
Imagine…an audience assembles in an empty space, eager with anticipation.
From the distance, a customized car slowly drives into the center of the space. One by one, the actors pour out of the car. Over the next hour, the cast performs ROMEO + JULIET, the most notorious and romantic of all Shakespeare’s plays. At the end of this tale of two star-crossed lovers is over, the car drives away, leaving only the magic of theatre behind.
ROMEO + JULIET is the most famous love story ever told. It’s a fiery romance loaded with young love, raging rivalries, humor, passion and tragic loss. Though it’s over 400 years old, it still speaks to us today, sparking our passion while striving to teach us the tragic consequences of hate and violence.
The Sapphire is shaking up Shakespeare and serving it with a twist! Our “show” is more than a play.
We expand the audience experience beyond the stage, creating a festive, fully immersive event that begins the moment you arrive. Only you can decide if you’re Team Capulet or Team Montague.
What’s my ticket funding? Where’s my money going?
Net proceeds raised from our public performances will directly support our teen suicide prevention performance showcase during the 2018 – 2019 school year in central Indiana schools.
