Shakespearean Dating Show, A

FARCE. In this reality-TV show, characters from Shakespeare’s "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," "The Taming of the Shrew," "King Lear," and "Romeo and Juliet" compete to find true love. Bachelors battle it out for a date with Juliet and Hermia, and bachelorettes pull out the stops to win a date with Hortensio and the King of France. In the midst of the chaos, the ghost of Hamlet’s father appears, the Chorus constantly comments on the action, Juliet’s hot-headed cousin chases Romeo off, and some witches create havoc for Macbeth, the stage manager. A fun way to introduce students to Shakespeare. Easy to stage.
