On the Road to Verona

The Minnesota SkyVault Theatre Company

Show Information:

Leave your cell phones on! Go to our “Road to Verona” Facebook page and join the characters on stage. Post your comments on how to write love letters, “like” characters’ relationship updates, react to Proteus unfriending Valentine, or post your own “dress up like a man” selfie. These juvenile minstrels may need adult supervision on social media. But they don’t need middle-aged Shakespearean actors pretending to be teenagers in love. Energetic, whimsical “Two Gentlemen of Verona-ish” bardiness.

    This was a great show performed by very talented and musical teens. Lots of fun and energy. Definitely worth seeing. 😁 during the show you are encouraged to Facebook with them, there are character updates as song lyrics.

    Excellent show! The cast did a great job and it was so much fun to watch and (at times) get involved. Highly recommended.

    A fantastically high energy production that’s jammed with comedy, tragedy, romance, and wit! And to top it all off the original score weaves seamlessly into the sincerely concocted story line!

    This was an incredibly entertaining show. Fun, energetic and creative. The cast is extremely talented. Even before the play began the cast was entertaining us. The use of Facebook was inspired and really brought a great new level of fun. I was thoroughly entertained the whole time! For a good time, call Verona.

    This is easily one of the most unique shows I’ve ever seen at Fringe or outside of the Fringe. It’s just incredibly fun. The performers all may be quite young, but they have unlimited reservoirs of energy and talent. They sing and play their own instruments very well. They combine dramatic acting with slapstick, gymnastics, silliness and wit. As if there unusual adaptation of Shakespeare wasn’t interesting enough, the audience is encouraged to like the group on Facebook and follow the show online with live updates that are often hilarious and helpful. For example, song lyrics will appear if you like to sing along to the amazing songs. They are definitely one of the best shows in Fringe and I can’t imagine watching “On the Road to Verona” without smiling.

    Adorable show, interesting concept where the troupe of youthful players is abandoned by the bard on the road. They have to make up what they remember of the play. Full of humor, hijinks and songs the audience can sing along with. (Lyrics on FB). Youthful (and slender) cast members were even helpful afterwards in getting a tightly parked car out of the parking lot!

    A musical retelling of Shakespeare’s Two Gentlemen of Verona where the actors encourage us of your phones as the characters are constantly updating posting updates on Facebook. Clever use of social media, but I was too caught up in the show to take advantage. These teenage actors bring new life and energy into this comedic take on a classic which kept me smiling throughout. The music is not only beautiful (those harmonies!) but almost a character itself. I don’t have enough good things to say about this play and want to watch it again. The music is already stuck in my head.
    Spoiler: Be prepared for the actors to invade the audience
