This musical based on Romeo and Juliet, is a wonderful way of introducing young people to the works of Shakespeare. The music is dramatic and varied, with fighting songs, dances and romantic solos, in both traditional and modern styles.
There is plenty of scope for solo, group, and chorus parts. Two onstage choirs represent the opposing Montague and Capulet families.
Suggestions for instrumentation are included. This book includes score, pupils' script and song lyrics. Shakespeare's original text has been edited for young performers. Additional pupils' books are available.
