Young people aged 16-26 have an unique opportunity to see Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, Romeo & Juliet, for only £5 this autumn. As part of Sheffield Theatres’ Live for 5 scheme there are 1,000 seats – more than ever before – available for this production at this special rate.


Undoubtedly William Shakespeare’s most romantic play, Romeo & Juliet bursts onto the Crucible stage from Thursday 17 September to Saturday 17 October in a brand new, vibrant production. This familiar story of love blown apart by tragedy is a perfect introduction to Shakespeare. It follows Sheffield Theatres’ previous highly acclaimed productions of Twelfth Night, The Winter’s Tale and Hamlet. Freddie Fox(Cucumber for Channel 4) plays Romeo whilst Morfydd Clark (The Falling) plays Juliet. Ticket prices for the production range from £17.00 to £25.00 making the £5 ticket deal exceptionally good value.


Claire Murray, Sheffield Theatres’ Communications and Fundraising Director commented:

‘We want to welcome everyone to the theatre and we appreciate that for our younger audiences, it can seem an expensive night out. We’re making 1,000 seats available at only £5 for Romeo & Juliet and many hundreds more available across all shows in our autumn season. We believe that it’s important that everyone has the chance to enjoy great theatre on their doorstep and we’re committed to making our productions more accessible – Live for 5 is just one of the ways we’re doing this.’
