SLY RAT THEATRE CO. brings the magic of Shakespeare
to Queens Park, Moonee Ponds this Summer!

6 PERFORMANCES ONLY
DON’T MISS OUT!
Following the blockbuster success of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Tempest, Melbourne’s ‘Sly Rat Theatre Company’ is trundling its circus back into town to the beautiful Queens Park in Moonee Ponds, proudly supported by Moonee Valley City Council.
They’ll be presenting their brand new take on Shakespeare’s most popular and romantic tragedy, Romeo & Juliet at sunset.
Everyone remembers the romance and passion. Everyone recoils with heavy heart at the tragedy. Romeo & JULIET is one of the world’s favourite stories. Across countless performances, audiences have opened their hearts to these star-crossed lovers. And its enduring popularity is no surprise – it's about the world's favourite pastime; falling in love.
Sly Rat Theatre honours this tradition, though this time, things are going to be a little different. Moving through time and space, Sly Rat’s co-artistic directors – director Alan Chambers and playwright Andy Harmsen – have stripped, twisted, turned up the volume, and transformed this age-old tale into something that will touch your hearts in ways never dreamt of before.
Starring an ensemble of the state’s finest theatre talent: Victoria Haslam and Masashi Shimamoto (both appearing 2018's television series 'Romper Stomper' on Stan) as our ‘star-crossed lovers’. Brendan Ewing (The Eisteddford Black Swan State Theatre Company), Katharine Innes (Lioncat Studio’s The Subjects and television’s Fix Her Up), Harry Tseng (following his superb performance for MTC’s Jasper Jones), Alexandra Aldrich (ABC’s Dr. Blake Mysteries), Letitia Sutherland (Suburban Mayhem), Todd Levi following his role in the Seven Network’s Wanted with Rebecca Gibney and newcomers Ty Holdsworth & Lore Burns,
Get set to fall in love again with William Shakespeare’s Romeo & JULIET!
The event is free for all audience members and the show is suitable for all ages.
