Toy Factory presents Romeo & Juliet
Everyone knows or have at least heard of, Shakespeare’s legendary play, Romeo & Juliet. Toy Factory is proud to present that very play with fresh vibrancy and a dash of sexy thrown in! From 13 February to 23 February 2014 at Drama Centre Theatre, Toy Factory Productions will be giving the famous grave sweethearts a new lease of life, with an audacious, updated new production brought to you by a super-sexy young lineup of cast and creative.
True to the youth of Shakespeare’s hot-blooded lover-and-fighter characters, a gorgeous young cast ranging from their teens to thirties promise to ignite this tale of bloody battles and fiery young love and desire. Benjamin Kheng, singer from international hit band and personally one of our favourites, the Sam Willows, takes the limelight as Romeo. Playing Juliet in her professional theatre debut is Theresa Wee-Yenko. The rest of the superb cast includes Caleb Goh, Dwayne Tan, Josephine Tan, Edward Choy and Andrew Mowatt, with eagerly-watched up-and- comers Timothy Wan, Marc Valentine, Ethel Yap, Daphne Quah, Andy Pang and Australia’s Nelson Clemente.
The creative team is not to be overlooked! Hailing from Kuala Lumpur, Nell Ng takes the directorial reins, assisted in fashioning an achingly atmospheric production by award-winning designers – previously London-based Chris Chua will work on the stunning set; Adrian Tan, who has worked on countless acclaimed dance and theatre pieces, designing the lights; and internationally celebrated Thai fashion house Tube Gallery are the masterminds behind the couture costumes. And let’s not forget the soundscape: songwriting stalwart Elaine Chan will create a series of original melodies to show off Shakespeare’s immortal text and heady emotional highs.
You can expect a gloriously gutsy production full of eye-popping design, merciless combat scenes and of course, beautiful romance, as Toy Factory brings Romeo & Juliet to vivid life for a new generation!
