“His name is Romeo, a Montague, The only son of your great enemy.” My character in the play of William Shakespeare is Juliet’s nurse, and those lines are the disappointment of Juliet. My participation helped my group to present a successful Shakespeare’s scene by my work on the billboard. Also, I memorized my script and always trying to get closer to perfection as possible. Last but not least, I helped my group by always being able to do extra rehearsals and in anything they needed help for.
To begin with, my participation on the group, was by making a billboard, to catch the attention of the audience and the public interested in Romeo and Juliet. The play happens in the 1960’s in which love and peace was the big thing of the moment, so in the billboard I added some peace signs to represent the idea that the scene happened in that period of time. Also, I wrote the title and other information in bright colors, to give life and excitement to the paper. The billboard has a picture of sculptures hands touching and a rose in the middle, in which gives the idea of love until death. Additionally, the billboard has a well-known Juliet’s quote, where she says “My only love sprung from my only hate.”
To continue with, memorizing takes a lot of practice, and I’m sure my practice was worth it. The scene looks a lot more realistic when the actors know what to say and when to say it, that way they can focused on the emotions that they have to transmit to the audience. Acting as if I were the nurse, doesn’t give me a lot of lines, which means the small numbers of lines that I have, has to be amazing, so I can catch the attention of the audience with my character. My group also depends on me to make this play a pleasing and nice scene to watch, so I have been practicing a lot, so I have less chances of messing up. As Vince Lombardi quoted:” Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.”
Finally, my goal to this play is to be something fun and pleasing...
