Remembering the first Romeo + Juliet Movie ~ Kids and Teens' Play

Remembering the first Romeo + Juliet Movie ~ Kids and Teens' Play | Kids play | Scoop.it

Back in high school, I had this English teacher who was in-love with the works of Shakespeare - specifically Romeo and Juliet. Who could blame her? It was unanimously the most famous love story of all time and it's still being played by kids, teens and adults in stage plays.

 

Stephanie Pettus's insight:

Did you know that - the 1968 version which starred Leonard Whiting (the older but the more handsome "twin" of Zac Efron) and Olivia Hussey (who looks a little like Kristen Stewart).

Building Confidence in Children Through Drama ~ Kids and Teens' Play

Building Confidence in Children Through Drama ~ Kids and Teens' Play | Kids play | Scoop.it

Drama and the Performing Arts are excellent methods of building confidence in children and adults alike. Learning through drama allows children to explore their creativity and have fun whilst leaving their shyness and worries behind. Drama also works by stimulating and supporting the growth of imagination and other skills.

 

Stephanie Pettus's insight:

Drama puts the "get up and go" back into entertainment

Antigone

Antigone | Kids play | Scoop.it

In the final chapter of Sophocles' Oedipus Cycle, Antigone must choose between upholding the laws of the city, or honoring the wishes of her slain brother by giving him the full burial rites required by the gods. This prose adaptation makes the drama feel fresh, immediate, and accessible, while preserving the harsh beauty of Sophocles’ original text. The chorus passages are expanded to help modern audiences see how they connect to Antigone’s struggle.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe ~ Kids and Teens' Play | Kids play | Scoop.it

Have you ever dream of going to a place where animals can speak, different magical creatures that can be seen not to mention—the evil ice witch, and a wardrobe that can transport to Narnia.

 

Stephanie Pettus's insight:

If you will ask me, which I prefer to watch—movie or #childrentheaterplays? I would choose theater plays because it gives me the thrill, more fun and lots of learning to learn watching plays.

Alice In Wonderland

Alice In Wonderland | Kids play | Scoop.it

A largely faithful adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic, with one major twist: inspired by a passage in which Alice wonders aloud whether she is herself, or other girls she knows, this Wonderland splits the part into three Alices, who alternate with her mood shifts and size changes. Not only does this device give more than one girl a chance to play the title roles; it finally gives Alice's identity issues the focus they deserve.
