MHS ‘Romeo’ is spoof of Shakespeare drama

Maryville High School Drama II will present “Romeo, You Idiot” on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 8-9, at the school theater.

The comedy by Tim Kochenderfer is a spoof of Shakespeare’s famous play. A synopsis reads: “Nothing could come between Romeo and Juliet. Not the most bitter mafia rivalries, nor the itchiest poison ivy, nor even the wooings of an alleged vampire could tear them apart. Yes, the love of Romeo and Juliet could survive anything.

“Well, except for poison.”

Showtimes are at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 8; and at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 9. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students and are available at the door.

The cast got together last week for Picture Day.
