The project, by writer-director Alan Brown, features Numrich as Sam Singleton—the film's Romeo—opposite Doyle, who plays Glenn Mangan. "Private Romeo" screens through Feb. 16.

The cast also includes Hale Appleman, Charlie Barnett, Adam Barrie, Chris Bresky, Sean Hudock and Bobby Moreno.

Here's how "Private Romeo" is described: “When eight cadets are left behind at an isolated military high school—the greatest romantic drama ever written seeps out of the classroom and permeates their lives. Incorporating the original text of ‘Romeo and Juliet’, YouTube videos, and lip-synched Indie rock music, ‘Private Romeo’ takes us to a mysterious and tender place that only Shakespeare could have inspired.”

The film will screen at 1 PM, 3 PM, 7 PM and 9:15 PM. Talkbacks with Brown, the film's director, and members of the cast are held Feb. 10 following the 7 PM and 9:15 PM screenings as well as Feb. 11 following the 7 PM screening.

Numrich, who created the role of Albert Narracott in War Horse, has also been seen on Broadway in The Merchant of Venice. He currently stars in the world premiere production of Daniel Talbott's Yosemite, which opened Off-Broadway Jan. 26 at the Rattlestick Theater.

Doyle, who played Billy Narracott in War Horse, has also appeared in Spring Awakening and Bye Bye Birdie. He currently can be seen in Michael John LaChiusa and Sybille Pearson's musical adaptation of Giant, which opened Jan. 27 at the Dallas Theater Center in Texas.

Cinema Village is located at 22 East 12th Street. For more information, visit www.privateromeothemovie.com.
