Custom/Practice is presenting Romeo and Juliet in association with the Corn Exchange, Newbury.

It is directed by Artistic Director Rae Mcken and we are thrilled to be working with choreographer Kenrick Sandy and composer Michael Asante, co-founders of Olivier Award winning hip hop dance company, Boy Blue.

Set in modern day Verona, expect a dynamic fusion of Shakespeare’s language with street dance choreography in a production that will appeal to traditional audiences and those completely new to Shakespeare and theatre.
