The new drama teacher at Verona Beach High is directing Romeo and Juliet. Nicola is certain she will be the perfect Juliet and her linebacker boyfriend the perfect Romeo. Too bad life isn't perfect!

Sparks fly when Danny, the self-professed drama geek, is chosen over the linebacker. Nicola cries foul and demands the play be recast. Not only must Danny fight his insecurities as a performer and his brother treating him as a science experiment, he must also fight to keep the role of a lifetime.

Both hilarious and touching, this show will appeal to those who love Shakespeare, those who fear Shakespeare, and those who've never heard of Shakespeare.
