Directors are constantly tweaking Shakespeare's plays in order to make them appeal to modern audiences. Though they often update the sets and the costumes, they rarely change the language, which can be a major roadblock in getting kids to understand and appreciate the Bard. Put your teenager in the director's chair by having her put a modern-day spin on Romeo and Juliet.
What You Need:
- Copy of Romeo and Juliet (an annotated copy is ideal)
- Copies of film versions of the play and/or movies based on it
- Pen and paper
