Subject: "Romeo & Juliet" by pre-college students
Does anyone have any words of wisdom or experience about how to approach a
production of Romeo & Juliet where all the roles are played by 17-19 year olds,
most of whom have acting experience from school productions but little or no
exposure to Shakespeare?
If you have done something like this before, how did you begin with them? Any
unexpected problems? Anthing you wished you had emphasized earlier? (Or
should we just get on with it and stop asking so many questions?!!)
