THE Masquers will be presenting a summer Shakespeare production of Romeo and Juliet.

Chairman Pamela Boon said the Masquers had not staged the tragedy since 1955.

Michael Boon and Iain Macdonald will co-direct the production and they will be considering casting over the next few weeks. Shortly and prior to the commencement of rehearsals Michael and Iain will be making their first visit to Stratford to consider the options available in hiring the Royal Shakespeare Company's costumes as the society has done before.

Michael Boon said it was great to be directing a play again and especially pleasing to have as a co-director such an experienced and major Masquers actor as Iain. He said they had had several meetings already and were looking forward to working together with a mixture of experienced and new younger players.

The society had already developed a generation of actors who worked well as a company in Shakespearean productions and the Masquers were keen to involve younger players in this production and looked forward to them becoming a part of the Masquers Company.

The production will be staged in the garden of David and Jane Adams in Gorleston in the week commencing June 28.
