El Chonchón's cast of innocents performs a funny, touching and true-to-The-Bard

version of Shakespeare's great romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. Four puppet protagonists tackle all the roles, fussing with their little wigs, their clumsy ladders, and their lack of technical support in a valiant and determined attempt to

achieve Shakespearean dimensions. Despite numerous setbacks and their simple natures, the true courage and heart of these little actors reveal the deepest meaning of Romeo and Juliet. The production has been reviewed as "uproariously funny and heartwarming." Created and performed by Miguel Oyartzúm and Carlos Pinero who are from Argentina and Chile.


*The performances on Thursday, September 30 will be performed in Spanish.
