About Shakespeare In Watts

In 2011 the Inner City Shakespeare project embarked on a innovative and life changing project. A production of Romeo and Juliet with the students of George Washington Prep High School, while simultaneously making a documentary about this unique endeavor. Shakespeare In Watts, covered the auditions, casting, rehearsals, final preparations and actual performances, of this engaging cast of students, their teachers and mentors, as they worked together to learn the language of the Bard culminating in a public performance of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
