Oldham Coliseum moves into Alexandra Park for the company’s first ever open air theatre production, the World Premiere of Star - Cross’d – Oldham’s very own take on Romeo and Juliet.
Robbie O, a typical tracksuit wearing Oldham lad, and Judy, a beautiful Bengali student of Oldham College, come from very different backgrounds and live very different lives. When the star-crossed pair meet and fall in love, their relationship is faced with conflict from all sides.
The cast features some Coliseum regulars including Adam Barlow, who you may remember from The Road to Nab End and Kes, and some new faces including stars of CBBC series The Sarah Jane Adventures, Anjli Mohindra and Mina Anwar and Ian Aspinall (Holby City and East is East).
The traditional version of Romeo and Juliet ends in inevitable tragedy - but in Oldham we do things differently. Prepare for a few surprises thanks to the Oldham Theatre Workshop, Delph Brass Band, a variety of dance companies, a sprinkle of magic and a whole lotta love.
This summer extravaganza celebrates the town’s kaleidoscope of cultures and unites diverse groups and organisations under one umbrella.
Star-Cross’d is performed promenade style, moving around Oldham’s beautiful park.
