Jr High Acting 2: Seussification of Romeo & Juliet

Jr High Acting 2: Seussification of Romeo &

Juliet

Pre-requisite: 3 acting classes and/or summer camps
To Seussify or not to Suessify Shakespeare’s works, it seems, did not bother the American playwright Peter Bloedel. He did it anyway, and we must be glad for the outcome! One of Shakespeares’ most famous works gets a re-telling, keeping the main characters and plot of the story, all in perfect Seussian style and verse. The Seussification Of Romeo and Juliet combines comedy, physical theatre and generous doses of lyrical poetry. And even though the playwright steers clear of Shakespeare’s famous use of blank verse, it is replete with sophisticated humor. Students in this class work towards performing a full one- act show in class.
