Few dramas are as heartwarming -- or heartbreaking -- as the original tale of star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare's tragedy set the bar for all romances, and even after four hundred years, few works in any medium match its intensity and beauty. Romeo and Juliet's set in Verona, where two families, the Montagues and the Capulets, have been feuding for years. When Romeo and his friends crash a Capulet party, the young Montague spies the beautiful Juliet, and a passionate love affair begins that will bring these two families together in the most tragic of circumstances.

Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure
by Steven Dietz
Based on the original 1899 play by William Gillette and Arthur Conan Doyle
Directed by Michael Laun
Directed by Michael Laun, who recently directed the hilarious box office hit The Musical of Musicals (the Musical!), this production promises intrigue, adventure and even romance, not to mention one of the most iconic literary figures of all time. The play pulls fascinating characters and plot twists from two original stories: A Scandal in Bohemia and The Final Problem, and underscores the great friendship between the brilliant, if enigmatic Holmes (William Elsman) and his loyal, if doddering physician friend Dr. Watson (Michael RJ Campbell). Also starring Troy Thomas as Sherlock's nemesis Professor Moriarty and STC's own Michele Hillen as siren Irene Adler. "The game's afoot!" and there is a new twist at every turn.
