The Many Uses of a Sharpie

For many that saw Romeo and Juliet, the fight at the end of Act 2 was some of the best stage combat they've ever seen. And a lot went into making it as real as possible; countless hours of rehearsals, an amazing Fight Director, athletic singers, some custom made lightweight blades and Sharpies.


Yep. Each night before going onstage Tybalt (Joel Sorensen) and Mercutio (David Adam Moore) would run through their sword fight using whatever they could find backstage. On this night, they got their hands on some Sharpies and our lovely production intern, Amy Duffy, was there to steal David 's phone to get some pictures.

Thanks to Amy, David and Joel for sharing.
