Shakespeare Meets Zombies in Kids-N-Co’s ‘Zombeo and Juliet’

Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers are having some very supernatural problems. Come see what they are in the KIDS-N-CO’s Camp Production of “Zombeo and Juliet.”

In this production, the Montgomerys are a family of zombies. Their sworn enemies, the Decapitates, are zombie hunters.  When Juliet’s cousin Ty kills Romeo, Romeo becomes a zombie, making the Montgomery family proud.

Soon after at the Decapitate’s costume party, Romeo and Juliet meet and fall in love, but poor Juliet Decapitate doesn’t know her love is one of her undead adversaries.

It isn’t until Romeo kills Ty and gets banned from the mall — tragically cutting off his Orange Julius supply — that Juliet learns the truth about her love.

She is faced with a difficult decision:  does she abandon her family for her true love or does she perform her family duties and send Romeo to his grave for good?  Finally, a version of “Romeo and Juliet” where the audience won’t know the ending!

Under the direction of camp director Vanessa Keyser, this show promises laughter, sword play and some zombierificdance moves.

KIDS-N-CO.’s next production camp starts July 17, culminating in three production on the final weekend of camp. During the four weeks, kids will learn about everything theater with an awesome team of teachers led by Keyser.

Performances are start this Friday & Saturday at 7:30 p.m. , and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, at First Presbyterian Church at 1340 Murchison. Tickets are $7 for adults, and $5 for children, students, military and senior citizens.
