Shakespeare Shenanigans

Saturday, February 18, 2017

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Location:Yusunas Meeting Room

Romeo & Juliet is one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays and as luck would have it, NIU will present the play at Huntley Middle School beginning February 23. As a way to engage with Romeo & Juliet in a more relaxed style prior to its opening, NIU graduate and undergraduate acting students will perform famous speeches and scenes from it. However, there is a twist to our presentation — we encourage audience participation similar to an improvisation show! For example, we will have Mad Lib-ed soliloquies, scenes “re-cast” in famous movie genres, and some Shakespeare translated into family friendly rap lyrics. This is Shakespeare as both approachable and fun!

This FREE presentation is open to all, no registration required! All ages are welcome!
