The wait is nearly over! Every summer, our local Shakespeare Festival presents a children’s adaptation of the play they are performing. This year it’s Romeo and Juliet! I want to get the kids excited for the play, so I have been doing a little research into adaptations. I found some really cool things!
Movie – Romeo & Juliet: Sealed with a Kiss – This is currently streaming on NetFlix! – I found this fun review of the movie over at Or What You Will, a blog about Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet for Preschoolers.
I came across the website: Kids Love Shakespeare. It has lots of great information and adapted scripts available for purchase. Check out their page on Romeo and Juliet – scroll down and click on the Romeo and Juliet Summary for a great one-page description of the play.
We recently scored a second-hand doorway puppet theater. I am excited to see what the kids think about putting on a show… Maybe even working on writing a little story to perform… We’ll see how it goes… I hope this gets them excited about the play!
