- Starting with Act IV, there will be group presentations of the scenes in Romeo & Juliet
- The presentations should be organized, planned, and rehearsed prior to presentation to the class
- Credit will be awarded to those students who implement costumes and props in their presentation
- Some students may need to play more than one role
- Memorization is not necessary, but knowledge of one’s part will help with reading and delivery
Special attention should be given to body language, stage placement, movement, & positioning – Acting is MUCH more than reading a part – BE the character!

1 Play in 1 Period
Each animal group is responsible for writing a script for one act of the play.
The act needs to be truncated to fit within a 10 minute window using modern English (or any form of English you wish). Be creative!
What time period, genre, or language will you choose? What costuming, behaviour, accent, and props would be necessary to tell your story?
All major components must remain but unnecessary information, dialogue, and characters can be removed. The script and blocking are completely your decisions – each act does not need to be identical to the one that comes before or after.
We’ll perform this version of Romeo and Juliet in one period on the last day of the unit. Let’s film it for the world to see. I think you’re going to create magic.
Create a Google Doc for your script – share with the group and me.
The date for performance is TBA.
Tigers: Act 1
Turkeys: Act 2
Monkeys: Act 3
Zebras: Act 4
Rhinos: Act 5
