The Utah Shakespeare Festival Touring Company will be performing Romeo and Juliet Monday evening, March 16, 2020, 7 p.m. at Springville High School. This performance is free to the public. All ninth-graders are studying Romeo and Juliet in their English classes this year.

First performed over 400 years ago, Romeo and Juliet  is undoubtedly one of William Shakespeare’s most recognized and beloved plays. Dealing with themes of familial conflict, friendship, and (of course) love, Romeo and Juliet also explores themes of hate, revenge, and death/violence. The latter themes are undeniable, permanent, and real in all of humankind and have been repeated throughout history. Shakespeare places these themes front and center in Romeo and Juliet—and so do we in our production.

The touring director, Jason Spelbring, said, “I have always struggled to find where I fit in this play. Plays, by design, are written to allow us (the audience) in, to challenge us and invite us to explore other worlds. What would happen if we created a world where our audience members see themselves? Their type, their flaws, and their strengths. By setting our production in a classroom in 2020, we are forced to witness the effects of violent passion that Shakespeare intended to explore. Our company invites you to see the many sides of yourself in Romeo and Juliet, and I challenge you to hear this play for the first time through a modern-day lens.”

Dear Nebo Parents/Guardians & Employees:

If the storm proves to be as strong as predicted, Nebo School District schools will be closed all day tomorrow, Monday, February 3, 2020. However, a final decision regarding the closure of schools will NOT be made until 6:30 AM tomorrow morning.

Nebo will NOT be considering a two-hour delayed start tomorrow due to our Monday early out schedule.

Communications will be sent to parents and employees through email, text, and phone IF school is going to be canceled. Otherwise, school will be held according to our normal schedule. Announcements will also be placed on the Inclement Weather section of our web page (www.nebo.edu), and social media. 

 
Thank you for your support of Nebo schools and students.
