When the students of Walcat received word that they were to perform their
version of Romeo & Juliet they were very excited.
But they found out that memorising and understanding Shakespeare is a lot
of hard work.
But with the help of their tutors they soon discovered that if you just take a little time Shakespeare isn't that hard after all.
|One of the problems was the characters. At first the students couldn't get a feel of their character so they worked on ideas from the group and from tutors but once they put down the script and started experimenting with their characters eg the way they move, speak and sit etc they soon began to develop their own character.|
