Hi All, 

Thank you for your hard work on your iMovie projects! I cannot wait to see the final products. 

Reminder: You will be dismissed from class at 12:45 on Thursday. The Romeo and Juliet play will take place in the auditorium and run from 12:55-2:25. All of my students will be seated in the balcony. Please meet me by the art wing so that we can enter the auditorium up there.

Holy Franciscan Friar! 

Okay, so here’s your charge: Act 2, Scene 3. Romeo is giddy and has just left the Capulet mansion. He runs to see Friar Lawrence. The scene opens with a soliloquy. Please be prepared to discuss why you think Shakespeare chose to have this scene, and our first meeting of the Friar, begin in this way. Now, follow the 4 points below.

Class #1 HW – the balcony scene!

Use this link to the text to help you understand this scene.

Watch how Romeo’s opening lines are performed here:

What is the mood of this scene? How is this kind of talking “so Romeo”?

Now watch this longer clip of 2.2. How does this Romeo act a bit differently? Which one do you like better? What’s your impression of Juliet here? Has her character changed since the first scene when we met her? How so?

This is an old timey show. Old folks reference it as an American staple.
What’s your opinion of how he discusses the play?

Andy Griffith

– what does he say a soliloquy is?
