Centenary Stage Company’s NEXTStage Repertory is currently in rehearsals for their production of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet adapted by Stephen Michael Davis. 

Centenary University Theatre students bring Shakespeare's timeless tale of star-crossed lovers to life at Centenary Stage Company’s Little Theatre. Possibly one of William Shakespeare's most well known stories, Romeo and Juliet is a romantic tragedy where two young people fall in love but are doomed.  It is not simply that their families disapprove; the Montagues and the Capulets are engaged in a blood feud, and the tragic ending seems almost inevitable. Romeo and Juliet was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and, along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed. 

The cast of Romeo and Juliet is made up entirely of Centenary University theatre students. The cast for this production includes: Kayla Yepez as Juliet, Danny Paternina as Romeo, Kylie Smith as Nurse, Madison Rhine as Benvolio, James Brandes as Mercutio/Page/Prince, Mark Squindo as Friar Laurence/Sampson, Christopher Rice as Tybalt, Jerry Caviston as Lord Capulet, Viviana Mendez as Lady Capulet/Apothecary, Robert Costa as Lord Montague/Peter, Gabrielle Provini as Lady Montague/Rosalind/Nurse Standby, Jacoby Stewart as Paris/Abram, Osaivbie Igiebor as Friar John/Gregory, and Evan Flick as Baltzar/Peter Standby.  

The 2023-24 Season of Performing Arts events at the Centenary Stage Company is made possible through the generous support of the NJ State Council on the Arts, the Shubert Foundation, the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, the Sandra Kupperman Foundation, the John and Margaret Post Foundation, The New Jersey Theatre Alliance, the CSC corporate sponsors, including Platinum Season Sponsor the House of the Good Shepherd, Silver Sponsors, Heath Village, Visions Federal Credit Union, Explore Warren, and Fulton Bank, and Centenary Stage Company members and supporters.
