As opening night gets closer, Craig said it’s been a pleasure watching the actors develop their characters. “I sit and I watch them and it’s really emotional seeing how each took on a new persona,” she said.

Beachler summed up what makes this YSSP production different: “The real reason all of it is something new from YSSP is because it’s the concept of putting ‘Romeo and Juliet’ in this somewhat fairytale/storybook timeless theme that makes it feel like you’re watching some type of fable take place,” she said.
