When Dan De Jaeger and Melanie Dahling first started reading "No Fear Shakespeare",
a website/book series that helps students by putting Shakespeare into modern English,
it was to work on an audition.
As they read the paraphrased version of Romeo and Juliet, they realized how absurdly hilarious Shakespeare verses become when they are "de-flowered".
Being two enthusiastic people with many talented friends, they decided to stage a reading of this stripped down version of Romeo and Juliet on Tuesday, June 14, at Aqua Books, from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm.
Admission fee of $5 goes toward space rental/future "no fear" productions.
