An audience-interactive, immersive experience in which the cast (and the audience!) posts to Facebook throughout the performance to comment on the action, add another level of humor, and share lyrics to SkyVault’s original, Shakespeare-inspired songs.

The script and Shakespearean-lyrics for this original production were developed collaboratively by the SkyVault ensemble and premiered at the 2016 Minnesota Fringe Festival, where reviews by regular Twin Cities theatre-goers rated Verona among the best of the 168 shows at the Festival.
