Taste of Wheaton 2013

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Juggling, dancing, showcasing stage combat from the upcoming studio show, and playing musical instruments were just some of the activities Wheaton Drama members participated in during the Taste of Wheaton the first Saturday in June. The cast and crew of this summer’s studio show, Romeo & Juliet, entertained audiences and handed out show materials. Here are Steven Merkel’s photos from the day.

John Trygstad and Katheryn Pucillo show that the Montague/Capulet feud is not to be trifled with in the upcoming studio production of "Romeo & Juliet". Some of the show's stage combat was showcased during the Taste of Wheaton.
