Subject:        How to act as Romeo

Hi, there,

I am a college sophomore, who will act as Romeo this December. The drama
we will put on will only include five scenes of the play: Romeo meets
Juliet; balcony; wedding; kills Tybalt; dead. I am wondering if some of
you can offer me some tips or suggestions that will improve our
contemporary work, no matter the settings, the language tones, etc.

And another question, do we need to adjust some rarely used words in the
original play into their modern counterparts. For instance, thou to you;
wouldst to would; overperch to fly over? I know it may sound a little
bit awkward, but it will be easier both for the actors/actresses and the
audience.

Sincerely,
Leslie
