It’s the final stages of rehearsal for Gone Rogue
Back in November, Megan told us all about Gone Rogue’s production of Romeo and Juliet, which opens in the Nuffield Theatre on campus in February next year. With just a few weeks of rehearsal left post-Christmas and exams, it’s almost time for the curtain to come up on the student company’s interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s best-known tragedies.
Gone Rogue Productions are the touring company name for SUSU Performing Arts’ Theatre Group and Showstoppers. This time, it’s Theatre Group who are providing the talent for the upcoming production, but both societies have previously toured under the name, most memorably at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This year’s offering to the Fringe consisted of a duo of productions from Theatre Group; a gender-swapped The Importance of Being Earnest and the much darker Tape by Stephen Belber. Both societies are in talks over the coming weeks to decide their touring shows for the Edinburgh Fringe as well as this year, plans to go to the Camden Fringe, but for now the company’s focus is all on the upcoming show at the Nuffield.
Tickets for Romeo and Juliet can be purchased on the Nuffield website. For more information about the show, click here, or follow @GoneRogueUK and @SUSUPerform on Twitter.
