Romeo and Juliet is a tale of profound love and intense hate colliding with new relationships and old conflicts. Their deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families.
County Councillor Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: "I have no doubt that this will be an entertaining evening.
"This is probably Shakespeare's most famous romantic tragedy. I'm sure that the performance will immerse everyone in the greatest tale of love and loss.
"Even the Bard himself couldn't have imagined a more incredible location for this performance, in the wonderful historic Lancaster Castle."
Tickets for the performances cost £12.50 on a Wednesday and £25 on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
