TOPEKA (KSNT) -The Lady Shakes Theatre Company presents “Romeo and Juliet” at the Jayhawk Theatre.

“Lady Shakes Theatre Company is a woman-led group that promotes the production of classical theater and bending some of the traditional gender roles. Our production tonight features an all woman cast,” Alexandra Reilly, the director of “Romeo and Juliet,” said.
