A whimsical reinvention of Shakespeare’s tragic love story, complete with rhymed couplets, creative wordplay, and fantastical machines — similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with if he ever had his way with the script…
A very important item in this play: The Entire Script is in Suess Rhyme. It will be critical to get lines correct and in the right order. Especially for Narrator 1 and Narrator 2, as they complete each other’s sentences. Timing and pacing will play a key role in the success of the lines. For this reason most of the speaking roles in the cast will be filled by teens and adults.
It is expected in this play that actors may take on multiple roles. Actors can be doubled, tripled, (or even quadrupled) into most all of the other roles as the needs of any given production warrant. It is possible to perform this show with as few as 10 actors and perhaps fewer. Quick costume and character changes add to the whimsy of the show.
