During scene 9, the play within a play, we had fast music playing throughout and just lowered the music when the kids were going to talk. We also had some basic sets (very simple wood door frame for the house, 2 gold star balloons for the ball, 4 little stuffed animals for the forest.. etc) and Juliet would come out and put these out or take them off throughout this scene, and it was hilarious.

Created Cinder White's "dirty" costume so that it could be removed as she twirled revealing her ball gown underneath.

Scene 9 leaves so much room for the imagination-- let students really explore and create big comedic moments.
