The Dream in High Park's outdoor stage (photo by Chris Gallow)

TO SEPTEMBER 5 In the heart of Toronto’s picturesque High Park, Shakespeare’s famous drama, Romeo and Juliet, takes shape in a modern play-within-a-play adaptation created for the Canadian Stage TD Dream in High Park, an annual summer-theatre tradition. This year’s offering sees travelling performers stranded at a Verona train station; to pass the time, the thespians break into a retelling of the Bard’s romantic tragedy, utilizing items such as iPods and suitcases as props on the outdoor stage. High Park Amphitheatre, Tuesday to Sunday, 8 p.m., pay-what-you-can admission (suggested minimum $20), children 14 and under free; call 416-367-1652 or visit here for more information.
