Romeo & Juliet, rehearsal #1

Monday, April 11, 2011

We had our first rehearsal today.

First, none of the girls wanted to be Juliet, because they didn't want to be associated romantically with any of the boys. Then, I convinced the smallest girl to be Juliet because she would be easy to be carried in (when she is fake dead, from the potion) - and she was thrilled to be carried around.

Then, it took a while to get a Romeo. I finally nominated one kid. He was okay. I still don't have Tybalt.

So then I had to demonstrate how to be Tybalt - I had Romeo stab me with a ruler (and he knew to stab between body and arm, so it looks like it goes in) - then I waved my arms around, rolled my eyes, stuck out my tongue, and staggered "off stage" - the kids went hysterical, apparently my "death" cracked them all up.

This play is going to be a comedy instead of a tragedy!!!!!!!!

We do have really cool props, however!
