WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Cape Fear Shakespeare performs two shows this month at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater.

The Shakespeare Youth Company will put on Romeo and Juliet on June 13, 14, 19 and 20.

Despite being written over 400 years ago, the play remains relevant today.

In a new twist, the company is putting on the show about star-crossed lovers with a “genderless” cast.

An adult cast will perform Merry Wives of Windsor on June 15, 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24.

All of the shows are free and begin at 8:00 p.m.

Since 1993, Cape Fear Shakespeare on the Green has been a Wilmington summer tradition.
