Join us at 7 PM on August 24 for Shakespeare in the park! A performance of Romeo and Juliet by the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company will be held in the Outdoor Pavilion at the OCAC. Free, all-ages event.

About the show: One of the most beloved romantic tragedies in Shakespeare’s canon, Romeo and Juliet is the tale of Bard’s star-crossed lovers. Romeo and Juliet fall instantly in love only to discover they come from feuding families. In defiance of their families, amidst the animosity of friends and in concealment from their mentors, a young couple risk everything to be together. CSC is proud to present “Romeo and Juliet” and prove its continued relevance in the lives of young and old alike, throughout the ages.
