|The Huia 1 Cast of Romeo and Juliet|
The thing I did well was speaking slowly and clearly because I didn't race my lines or words together. If I did this again, I would do more action because I didn't do much.
The people who I think have improved the most are Jessica (Juliet) and Cameron W (Romeo) because they had to remember a lot of lines and do a lot of actions too. The person who I think was the angriest was Tybalt, played by Karnjeet, because he really acted like he was really angry. The best death, I think, was Jackie (Mercutio) because he really took the spotlight when he was dying. Latrey - Benvolio
At first I was really shy, but at the end I really wanted a part because I had got more confident. Next time I'll get a part. The funniest part was when they all die because when they stabbed people, everyone started laughing. I have learnt that Shakespeare is actually not that boring.
If I do Romeo and Juliet again, I would be Juliet because I am sure I can do that role because I'm loud and can show emotion.
My favourite parts were the balcony scene because Juliet was talking about Romeo and how nice he was. But Romeo pops up and Juliet was shocked that he was listening. I also liked how everyone died at the end. Ramandeep - understudy and narrator
My favourite part was when the families realised they both were wrong and didn't fight any more. The funniest part was when Romeo died and Juliet woke up straight away. It was the worst timing in the world!
The scariest part for me was when I had to lament that Juliet had died because I had trouble with that.
I now fully understand the Romeo and Juliet story and could probably recite it in my own words.
I think the most improved class member was Jessica (Juliet) because she has come a long way with her actions and expression. Caitlin - Lady Capulet
This week we did drama and we practised a lot. I learnt all the boys' narrator parts, and my favourite one was, "A glooming peace . . . " My favourite part was when Tybalt killed Mercutio, and then Romeo killed Tybalt. My favourite insult was "Me thinks you stink !"
Next time, if I get to choose who I want to be, I would be Lord Montague because he doesn't talk too much and he is strict. I think Romeo (Cameron W) was really good, and the best death was Paris's (Danny).
The play was written by William Shakespeare over 400 years ago. I learnt that William Shakespeare lived in England and he did plays in the Globe Theatre during the day because there was no light at night time. Akjot - narrator
This week we performed a play in front of an audience. My favourite part was the death scenes because before they died, they sad their lines very well. I learnt many Shakespearean insults during our play, like:
"Maggot pie!"I have easily learnt the narrators' part but I wasn't used to the cue. If I did it again, I would still be a Capulet and a narrator, but do even better than before.
The funniest part was the murderers with the daggers. I think the most improved is Jessica (Juliet), and Cameron W (Romeo) has improved as well because he looks at the audience a lot. In the balcony scene, there was a soliloquy where Juliet spoke her thoughts aloud to the audience. Bridget - narrator
I played Lady Montague and I don't think I was loud enough, though at first, I was really scared. At first, before I was about to start, I forgot my words. I just went blank, but then my words came back. After a while, I wasn't scared - but I only had to say one line, so that was good. I thought how we were screaming our insults was cool, and it was fun. With the cues, we came in too slow sometimes - but most of the times it was good. I did well because I didnt go through it too fast. If it did it again, I would be louder. It felt good after I finished because it went really well.
The funniest part was the killing scenes because the characters were really good at dying. I think the most improved was Tonu as Lord Montague because he was really shy at first and yet he got up there and did it well. My favourite scene was the balcony scene because it's cute how Romeo pops out and Juliet got scared. Tegan - Lady Montague
I learnt how to say my insult violently. My insult was "Dung hill!", and my one was the best and loudest. When I had to say my part, I think I said something funny because people started to laugh. But overall, I am proud of myself because I haven't performed in a long time. I have achieved a lot of things with my acting and my lines. I think Lord Montague (Tonu) has got more confident in the play - better than when we were doing our rehearsal. I didn't expect that from him. Glenton - Capulet servant
