Tackling Romeo

Year: 2015

Genre: Comedy, Dance, Romance, Sport

Time Period: Present (2015)


Working-class, high school rugby star BOBBY SHERWOOD has everything going for him: popularity, the hottest girlfriend in all of Fairfield County, a scholarship to an elite Connecticut prep school, and Yale Law awaiting.  There’s just one thing standing in the way of Bobby’s golden future – his secret past as a ballet dancer!  In a desperate quest to rid dance from his life forever, Bobby sets out to moonlight in a one-off production of Romeo and Juliet.  Juggling “school-by-day, ballet-by-night” proves a total disaster, despite the aid of loyal best friend, MARTIN, who is adamant that BOTH OF THEIR LIVES will be over if anyone should ever find out. As his girlfriend, the entire rugby team, PRINCIPAL PARKER, the terrifying DEPUTY PRINCIPAL LYNCH, and his father come closer to finding out the truth, Bobby, now cast as Romeo and falling for his Juliet, finds his perfect life imploding as he struggles with being the boy his whole world knows and loves and the young man he really is inside.

A feel-good story about finding the courage to be true to yourself, TACKLING ROMEO will captivate mainstream audiences worldwide with its warmth, humor and beautifully choreographed dance numbers.
