Romeo and Juliet

Shakespear’s classic retold with puppets

A conflict between two families has been lasting decades, and a strong tradition of hatred has been established on both sides. But what matters most – love or tradition?

With humour and skill, the touching and undying story of Romeo and Juliet is made heartfelt, lively and dynamic. A love between two who won’t give in to prejudices and power. Filled with emotions and challenges that are easily recognisable for both children and adults.


”Teater Refleksion’s puppet version of ’Romeo and Juliet’ not only retells Shakespeare’s classic as a kid-friendly fairytale. (…) It simply retells the entire, cruel tragedy in a way that children understand.” – Teateravisen




You can find all the show guidelines for various schools and institutions here.

Please pay special attention to the following guidelines for evening and weekend shows:

• All 2020 shows have been put on sale with a reduced number of seats in the halls.
• When buying more than one ticket at a time, you’ll get a matching number of adjacent seats. Accordingly, there’ll be a distance of less than one metre between the persons in the group. All groups will be given seat numbers upon arrival for the show.
• If you wish to keep one metre between you and your neighbours (from nose to nose), each ticket must be bought individually. For logistical reasons, we cannot guarantee that you’ll be seated next to each other in this case. You’ll be given a seat number upon arrival for the show.
