Romeo and Juliet – The Castle Tour

Missing a bit of Shakespeare? American Drama Group Europe is giving a number of performances of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in Denmark, as part of their Castle Tour in 2023. They are associated with Art Education Network, and TNT BRITAIN, and perform English Theatre all over the world.

During summer they perform English theatre in castles or in gardens (open air) and this ambitious project links English speaking culture with the local historical heritage.

In Denmark, the group will visit:

Rosenborg Castle, Copenhagen
Søstrup Slot, Grenå
Den gamle By, Aarhus
Brundlund Slot, Aabenraa
