Terrace Mill Youth Theatre!!

Terrace Mill Youth Theatre presents “Romeo & Harriet” on July 15-16

A cast of 30 youth will present the musical “Romeo & Harriet” next Wednesday and Thursday, July 15 & 16, at 6:30 p.m. at the historic Terrace Mill in Terrace, MN.  
The Terrace Mill Children’s Theatre, in its 16th season, is under the direction of Julie Lloyd and Lucy Lloyd.  Participants range in age from five to 25, and come from Glenwood, Brooten, Belgrade, Sedan, Terrace, Lowry, Duluth, Delano, DeGraff, Faribault, Minneapolis-St Paul, Chicago IL, Scotsdale AZ, and North Hampton NH.  
“Romeo & Harriet” is a modern spoof of Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet,” told by a group of quarreling chorus members, who teach the unsuspecting audience about Shakespeare. The story takes place in modern day New York City, where the Montagues own a posh department store, and the Capulets a discount mart. The store clerks meet in the street to trade insults.  The show, full of outrageous characters and hilarious one liners, is a sure hit for audiences of all ages. While admission is free, a freewill donation will be taken to help defer costs of the program. “Romeo & Harriet” is produced through Pioneer Drama Service. 
From Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa, the cast of “Romeo and Harriet” includes Carma Hauge as Officer Escalus, Lucy Lloyd as Antipasto, Riley Schumann as Pesto and Paige Klaphake as Vinnie.
