Romeo & Juliet like you have never read it before; quick, fun, and easy to understand. Designed for 6-18+ actors, kids of all ages, or anyone who wants to enjoy and loosely understand Shakespeare's play.
What you will get:
- 3 melodramatic modifications for group sizes:
- Actual lines from Shakespeare's play mixed in
- Creatively funny interpretations of the play
- A delightfully funny rendition that is easy for ADULTS to understand too!
- A kid who loves Shakespeare!
This mini-melodramatic masterpiece is sure to be a doorway for your child to love all the classics. Shakespeare is difficult enough in class or watching on stage, let alone trying to teach the stories to children, but as the author's mantra states in the book, 'there is no better way to learn than to have fun'! Kids who have read this have also eventually purchased the entire Shakespeare works, and have completed 'hero' reports on Shakespeare at school.
Guaranteed to have you coming back for more!
The Author: Brendan P. Kelso, known to kids as Professor Peculiar because of his unique and humorous personality, came to writing modified Shakespeare scripts when he was taking time off from work to be at home with his son. 'It just grew from there.' Within months, he was being asked to offer classes in various locations and acting organisations along the coast of California.
An engineer by profession, Brendan never thought about writing. But he has always said, 'There is no better way to learn than to have fun!'
'Your play is a lot of fun to prepare for and the kids are doing a fabulous job! We had our first dress rehearsal last night - what fun! My only concern is that fact that there are so many scenes, so the kids are really challenged by being prompt with their cues to make it flow smoothly - any advice in that department would be welcome! I am directing this play with 20 middle schoolers - they are all great and some have serious talent!' [Sandra Scragg, teacher, North American school]
