Don’t let those clouds fool you!

R&J-Gallery003The forecast tonight looks good, despite those big clouds rolling across the sky! You’ve only got two chances to see Romeo & Juliet left, and there’s a chance it could rain on Thursday. Besides, what better way to start a national holiday than to watch a story about true love prevailing over all odds…

Back in Action with Romeo and Juliet!

R&J-publicity068After Sunday night’s rainout, the skies are clearing and it looks like it’ll be fine weather tonight for Romeo and Juliet in Barracks Square. The star-crossed lovers have not been so lucky with the weather gods so far, with 3 of our 5 performances having been rained out. There are only 3 remaining–tonight, Tuesday, and Thursday. So don’t delay… with the weather in these parts being what it is, if you put off coming to see us to another day, you might not see us!

That goes for Hamlet in Odell Park too, which will conclude our run with performances Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Both shows have been getting an amazing response so far! Check out our reviews at https://stureviews.wordpress.com/ and watch the trailers you can link to from this page for a taste of what you’ll see in the Square and in the Park, and see you at the shows!

“The heavens do low’r upon us for some ill”

R&J-Gallery013Though it’s not currently raining, it does threaten to later. We’re going to cancel tonight’s performance, enjoy your Sunday evening!

And don’t worry, Monday night’s forecast looks favourable, so make tomorrow the night to take in this wonderful bit of theatre, in the heart of downtown Fredericton.

“There is a play to-night before the King”

To attend, or not to attend, that is the question - whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the stings and blood loss of outrageous mosquitoes, or to take up DEET in a sea of black flies, and by opposing, enjoy the show?We’re back in full force in Odell Park tonight for another performance of Hamlet!
Don’t let those grey skies dissuade you from taking in some critically acclaimed, outdoor, immersive theatre. Remember, those trees act like giant umbrellas!

Back in Action Friday

We’re taking a day off on Thursday to rest our vocal cords and let the park dry out from Tuesday’s rain. We’ll be back with performances of Hamlet in Odell Park on Friday and Saturday and Romeo and Juliet in Barracks Square on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday before concluding our run with three more showings of Hamlet July 3, 4, and 5. We’ve had a great response to our shows so far, with last night’s crowd at Romeo and Juliet particularly large, so we encourage you to get out to both while the weather is looking good and before we lose some of our prime seating for R & J on Tuesday!

And it’s not just us saying the shows are great… The reviews are in and you can read STU Reviews’ take on Romeo and Juliet (and Hamlet too) at

See you at Odell Park on Friday!

What an unkind hour is guilty of this lamentable chance!

It seems all this rain has left our playing area full of damp grass, soggy set pieces, and water.
Tonight’s performance has been cancellèd!

Betake thyself to see the show tomorrow night.

Want to know who you’ll be watching tonight?

We may have been washed out for our preview last night, but tonight promises to be considerably drier.

Come to see the art we’ve been crafting for you, and enjoy a cool drink from Picaroons’ Bar in the Barracks. And please stay around after tonight’s show for our Gala Opening night reception, to mingle with the (revived) Romeo and Juliet, and all their friends and enemies!

Cancelled on account of excessive amounts of rain.


A Sunday full of rain means that no one wants to sit in the soggy grass while we go through our preview performance of Romeo and Juliet. You’ll just have to wait until tomorrow’s opening night gala, when it’ll be so pleasant in Downtown Fredericton, that you’ll have to quench your thirst with a cool draught beer from Picaroons’ Bar in the Barracks.

Watch the trailer for Romeo and Juliet!

Time for a dress rehearsal!


It feels good to be back in Odell for another stab at this show.


Check out our beautiful show!
