MISCELLANEOUS Productions’ “Kutz & Dawgs” – set in the Fair Verona Junkyard at the end of the world – is an original hip hop musical based on Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet and Broadway’s West Side Story.
This video is the document of the 45-minute play featuring youth from the community as alley cats and junkyard dogs. It is a strongly anti-gang, anti-violence, anti-bullying and anti-racism work. This community-engaged theatre creation was directed by Elaine Carol. It is suitable for ages 9 and older. We have also had many children age 5 – 9 that enjoyed the work immensely. It is up to their parents/guardians if they think it is suitable as there is simulated violence in the play.
