The Roxy Regional Theatre is looking to spread the word of the Bard in a fun, engaging and entertaining way. SLOSHED-SPEARE incorporates an abridged Shakespeare play with some adult beverages thrown in. With every donation of $5 or more from you, our audience, our players can receive life-saving sustenance in the form of a shot of top-shelf liquor. Thus, they become inebriated throughout the performance, not only for your entertainment but, more importantly, for your education. Join us while we entertain and educate audiences with a fresh and modern-ish take on the works of the literary lush himself, William Shakespeare. A brief summary of ROMEO & JULIET: An age-old vendetta between two powerful families erupts into bloodshed. A group of masked Montagues risk further conflict by gatecrashing a Capulet party. A young lovesick Romeo Montague falls instantly in love with Juliet Capulet, who is due to marry her father's choice, the County Paris. With the help of Juliet's nurse, the women arrange for the couple to marry the next day, but Romeo's attempt to halt a street fight leads to the death of Juliet's own cousin, Tybalt, for which Romeo is banished. In a desperate attempt to be reunited with Romeo, Juliet follows the Friar's plot and fakes her own death. The message fails to reach Romeo, and believing Juliet dead, he takes his life in her tomb. Juliet wakes to find Romeo's corpse beside her and kills herself. The grieving family agree to end their feud. While SLOSHED-SPEARE incorporates the consumption of alcoholic beverages, we advocate and encourage the need for responsible drinking and designated drivers. Furthermore, we require all players to have a designated driver for every performance.
