A short Cartridge in five Acts that gives a brief synopsis of one of William Shakespeare's most wildly successful (and profitable) plays, Romeo and Juliet. This is a companion Cartridge for Geocache Listing GC1D14F.

About This Cartridge

Romeo and Juliet is an early tragedy by William Shakespeare about two teenage "star-cross'd lovers" whose "untimely deaths" ultimately unite their feuding households. The play has been highly praised by literary critics for its language and dramatic effect. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and, along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Its influence is still seen today, with the two main characters being widely represented as archetypal young lovers. 

Starting Location

The parking area for the Performing Arts Center of UC Santa Cruz. Parking is $2.00

I think that I would have liked it if it wouldn't keep crashing my Colorado. I certainly liked the area and would have preferred to spend more time there but after getting frustrated that I could get neither Romeo & Juliet or All's Well to work, I moved on to Pacific Garden Mall Bingo. That one worked fine but I didn't get a bingo because it was time to take the kids to the boardwalk.

Romeo . . . . My daughter's 8th grade class did this as their school play last year. Until then, I had never seen it or read it. But everyone knows the line and the story. Thanks for a fun experience.

Hmmm, me too. What a pity. I drove all the way down to USSC and there I had my Colorado freezin' up. Already when I came just of the parking lot. Maybe the Garmin software is not fully mature. Will try when there is a new player. Please also let me know when the cartridge will be updated . . .

Thanks for all your efforts so far.

Grtzz,

same experience as FamilyDNA, couldn't get to Act I as the unit would freeze. We will try it again sometime or perhaps that new well rounded waymarker cartridge down the road! Cool that someone found the way to merge all three Groundspeak activities Kudos!!!

We were camping along the coast this week, so we put this adventure on our to-do list. Unfortunately, we were not able to complete the cartridge. Every time we arrived at Act 1, the GPS shut down. There was either a problem with the downloaded cartridge or with the Wherigo player (I recently uploaded the latest 2.6 firmware for the Colorado) causing the unit to crash.
