Romeo and Juliet

Extracts from this document...


Romeo and Juliet Introduction: Hello Mr Cruise, as you may know we are producing a new version of "Romeo and Juliet" and you are selected to play Tybalt's part in the play. In the play you are Juliet's cousin and you are a Capulet. You hate Montagues, "What! Drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word, As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee." This quote that you will have to say shows how much you hate Montagues. We have chosen you to play the role of Tybalt as you are strong, brave, aggressive, fit, athletic, honest and you are good at fighting. You showed all of these qualities in your last film, "Mission Impossible." So those qualities are why we have chosen you to play the role of Tybalt. In the play you demand revenge on Romeo at the Capulet ball and kill Mercutio. Half - way through the play and Romeo will kill you, but you won't be finished there. Your body will be needed in the last scene of the play. You will be involved in three scenes, act 1, scene 1, act 1, scene 5, and act 3, scene 1. You will really enjoy your role in the play as he is involved in a lot of action and fighting. ...read more.


You should wear dark clothes, like black jeans, black shoes, a black leather jacket and some sunglasses (to hide your contact lenses, until we want them to be shown). (Also this will give the audience a sense of mystery or confusion, as they cannot see your whole face). This appearance of dark clothes and sunglasses will also give the audience an impression that you're cool, calm and a top important person. Your entrance is important as well, so by using a black sports car or motorbike, this will give the audience an impression that you have a dark, aggressive attitude. Act 1 scene 5: The second scene you're in is the masked ball. Your first six lines begin with the words: "This, by his voice, should be a Montague..." is a soliloquy, apart from the line, "fetch me my rapier boy." You must try and mumble these words as you're talking to yourself, but obviously the audience must be able to hear you. From being in a happy mood, you have now spotted Romeo, (a Montague), trespassing at your uncle's mansion. Your mood now turns evil and aggressive; the audience must notice this, so they see that you hate Montagues and that you won't let him get away with this. ...read more.


Romeo then is furious, he turns on you. He has fire in his eyes and finally here it is here that you have your wish of fighting with Romeo. You fight through the streets of Verona, which is where your athleticism comes into action. Unfortunately here is where you die and Romeo eventually kills you. Hopefully the audience will see this as a sad moment and will be upset. This would show that they like you and that you played your part well! Conclusion: So Mr Cruise, now that's all your main scenes out of the way, now for the conclusion. Your character as Tybalt will be hard to play but we feel you have the qualities to play it. In the play Tybalt will have to be brave, aggressive, full of energy, fit, athletic, strong, honest, assertive and good at fighting. Throughout the play the audience will see these qualities and this will attract the audience's attention and keep them interested in the play and hopefully you. Throughout the play you are known as the 'Prince of Cats.' You are called this, as you are a good, fast and skillfull fighter, and you have to show this to the audience. I want you to know that the play is an action packed tragedy. ...read more.
