Please join Tufts University alumni for a viewing of Romeo and Juliet, one of history’s most influential plays of all time. Every summer the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company hosts Free Shakespeare on the Common. While this is a free event open to the public, we are inviting all Jumbos to sit together and watch the show!

We will meet at 7 pm at the Parkman Band Stand - look for the Tufts banner! Please bring a blanket or chair and food to enjoy during the performance. Please note that no alcohol is permitted.

We hope to see you there!

About the play:
The Capulet and Montague families have been engaged in a multi-generational feud, causing much distress and havoc in the city of Verona; but when young Romeo, son of the Montagues', meets Juliet, the daughter of the Capulets', their immediate love blossoms and accepts no barriers, with tragic results.


Please register online by Wednesday, July 26 so we know how many people to expect in our Tufts University Alumni group.


This is a free event.
