A Heartfelt Look at Romeo & Juliet

Cast Portraits by Arielle Simmons Photography

HEART was invited by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs to perform at Piccolo Spoleto 2017! In collaboration with and under the theatre mentorship of Charleston Stage Company's Associate Artistic Director, Marybeth Clark & PURE Theatre's Artistic Director, Sharon Graci and following the ideas from the Heartists, we adapted Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet into a 30-minute musical filled with humor and heart called A Heartfelt Look at Romeo & Juliet. We had two sold out performances with long waiting lists. We are so proud of our talented actors and our supportive community!

After almost 3 years of creating visual and performance art at HEART, we see this event as a milestone for inclusion, recognition and respect for our talented artists and actors with special needs.
