“Romeo and Juliet” will be directed by Bill Van Horn, who recently directed the popular “Peter and the Starcatcher” at Walnut Street Theatre. 

The lead of Walnut’s “Starcatcher” production, Brandon O’ Rourke, will work with Van Horn once again as he takes the lead role of Shakespeare’s teenager in love in “Romeo and Juliet”.

Lexi Gwynn, who played lead roles for Cline in “The Miracle Worker” and “To Kill A Mockingbird”, returns to appear opposite O’ Rourke as Juliet. Gwynn won a 2015 Broadway World Award as Best Actress for her portrayal of Helen Keller in “The Miracle Worker”.

“Romeo and Juliet” runs January 25 to February 19, 2017 at The Media Theatre. As a general rule for the annual Media Theatre plays, it is best to reserve seats early as they tend to sell very well, particularly for school groups. For tickets and information, call 610-891-0100 or visit
