School’s stylish Romeo & Juliet inspired by Madonna’s ‘Vogue’.

Last month, Bolton School staged a four-day run of Romeo and Juliet with Zack Howarth and Megan Smethurst playing the title roles. A musical version, it drew from the ’80s and ’90s New York ball scene to reinvent the concept of the battling houses of Montague and Capulet. The talented supporting cast included Sixth Former Billy Morrison as an imperious Lady Capulet.
