We won "Most Creative Use of Set/Props/Media"

Friday, April 15, 2011

The kids acted well, but they mumbled their lines and my narrators weren't as clear as I might have wished. The flags/banners were a huge hit with the judges. And the audience loved my court jester doing flips down the aisle.

The foil started peeling off during the sword fight (which was what I thought would happen, and was why I insisted we rehearse with yardsticks, not our swords) - plus a T square actually cracked!

Tybalt and Romeo died well; Juliet did a great job freaking out over Romeo, and offed herself well, but she picked her head up a bit early.

All in all, we did a great job. Some of the other groups had drama classes, and their acting was better. But we're the only ones who had home-made swords so that everyone had a sword. And we had the flags.

Oh, and this is my heart-throb court-jester kid (who really is a nice kid, and if I were 13 I'd probably have a crush on him too):

    I will admit, it was very rewarding when the teachers were all called up to the stage for our certificates, and my students were all hollering "Yay Ms. Schwartz" - that's what makes it all worthwhile!
