KCPT brings Dacha Theater to Port Townsend for Romeo and Juliet

Key City Public Theater (KCPT) is happy to bring Shakespeare back to Chetzemoka Park by presenting Seattle’s Dacha Theater for DICE: Romeo and Juliet.

Fri, September 2nd, 6 PM
Sat, September 3rd, 6 PM
Sun, September 4th, 6 PM

Dacha Theater is a Seattle-based company specializing in devised, immersive, and playful work. The play can feature new actors in the role for each performance.

Dacha re-imagines Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy as a vivid dream-turned-nightmare with spectacular choreography, Dacha’s signature playful interaction with the audience, and a magnetic underscoring by a live band.

DICE: Romeo & Juliet will be raucous, adrenaline-fueled, and heart-wrenching, as our brilliant actors roll the dice to fight and fall in love night after night.

Local audiences may recognize one of Dacha’s Artistic Producers, Emily Huntingford, who grew up in Port Townsend performing with Key City since 2008. She’s delighted to bring the work she is making in Seattle back to her hometown and theater again this year.

Play-goers are encouraged to bring camp chairs, beach chairs, blankets, and warm clothes for the cool evenings. Some blankets are available for lending. Admission to KCPT’s Shakespeare in the Park offering DICE: Romeo and Juliet is a pay-whatyou-wish at the park. Advance tickets can also be purchased on a sliding scale with a suggested donation set for $39 at KeyCityPublicTheatre.org. Picnics are welcome. Patrons can also buy treats after 5 p.m.
