A Busy Day

By | Drama, Humanities, Students | No Comments

Today the audience chairs and stage risers for our upcoming production of “Romeo & Juliet” were brought to Strata by Paul. This will enable us to figure out how many people can attend each production and price out how much the tickets will cost. Michael came to Strata today to work on some stage blocking and scenes with a couple of people. We also had some potential Strata parents come for tours and eat lunch with us. Overall today was especially busy with regular classes, work on the play, tours, and humanities in the afternoon.

Romeo & Juliet

By | Drama, Literature, Students | No Comments

As our current focus of study within the literary medium is “Romeo & Juliet”, along with our upcoming production “R+J” we have been slowly but surely making our way through reading Shakespear’s original “Romeo & Juliet” play. Everyone gets a chance to read the lines and stage directions which in turn goes along with learning some strange new words and ‘bethinking’ the scene before moving along to the next.

Today at Strata Montessori we practiced conveying a sword fight in our own innovative manner, as part of the Romeo and Juliet adaption. We also arranged our actors throughout the theatrical performance, in order to have the best show for our tremendous audience.

The First Stage

Today in set building we started brainstorming about our upcoming play: Romeo and Juliet. Taping the floor was a lot of fun. We came up with some cool ideas and I can’t wait to find out who’s who tomorrow and read through the script for the first time! After last year’s play I’m really excited for it!

Romeo & Juliet

Today we started reading Romeo and Juliet, with a little twist! We each were assigned a character from a scene and we played that character throughout the scene. I had a lot of fun playing Mercutio and am excited for next week!
