Aubrey Wilde: Romeo and Juliet 2015

Written by Romeo and Juliet cast member and Grassroots Shakespeare Company All-Star, Aubrey Wilde:




I have loved working with Grassroots on and off the stage. This is my first time back on stage in 3 years, so I’m a bit nervous. But reuniting with my old friend, Juliet, is really fun. You will only get to play your dream roles a few times, so cherish them while you can. 




I love the Grassroots process, and we are truly a family because of it! The collaboration that goes into every project is amazing, and it gives our shows a different feel than others. Everyone has an equal say in the product we show you, and every insight and idea helps us reach our end goal. I love the fact that we return to the text and see what is really going on rather than apply modern concepts. This tale is timeless, and that’s how we intend to tell it. I have loved going back to Juliet and finding new meanings and insights after three years of life experience and study. 




Aubrey will be playing Juliet in Romeo and Juliet


More about Aubrey Wilde:



This is Aubrey’s first show back with The Grassroots Shakespeare Co since Hamlet, Halloween 2012. During this time, she has worked administratively with GSC and is finishing up her BA in Theatre Performance at UVU. Some of her favorite UVU roles have been Eurydice in Eurydice, and Bianca in Taming of the Shrew.  Favorite Grassroots roles include Juliet, Ophelia, and Viola. 

"I'm excited to walk down memory lane with Juliet once again and get back on the GSC stage!"





Our Valentines Day production of Romeo and Juliet will have a very limited run from Feb 13th-14th at the Ladies Literary Club (850 E South Temple) in Salt Lake City.
