Romeo And Juliet

March 11, 2013
First, it was Twinkies. Then it was Saturday mail delivery. Now, it's my Gibble's chips??!! Oh, the humanity! How much pain and suffering can we as humans take before we just give in to our urges and indulge in other less-fun guilty pleasures such as eating right and exercise? Shouldn't we be doing something about this latest corporate American tragedy that makes Shakespeare's “Romeo and Juliet” look like “Mary Had a Little Lamb?” Shouldn't we as chip-eating Americans be rallying on the steps of the currently idled Nibble with Gibble's plant on Molly Pitcher Highway between Greencastle and Chambersburg?

For every stage of life - contented child, sullen teenager or stressed adult - there are fictional people who influence behaviors or attitudes. These characters make their audiences laugh and cry. Oftentimes, they represent an ideal to strive for or repulse people with ugly attitudes or conduct. Brooklyn Needy believes that, historically, fictional characters were created to inspire us. Needy, a sophomore at North Hagers-town High School, says fictional characters "help people work through problems.

I since rely believe that "Gnomeo and Juliet" was made after the following conversation between two executives in Disney's "Low Creativity, Moderate Profits" department: Exec 1:   We want to do "Romeo and Juliet" for kids, but the characters shouldn't be human.  Let's do it with some cute little creatures that will make the movie more family-friendly. Exec 2:  Why don't we make the title a pun?  Kids love puns.  Or at least we'll tell them they love puns.

 In the world of theater, a playwright writes the words and an actor speaks them. But it is the director who has to make sure the playwright's vision goes from the writing on paper to being portrayed by walking, talking human beings.  And for playwrights today, especially ones who are staging new pieces of work, the partnership between the playwright and director is invaluable.  For Contemporary American Theater Festival first-timers playwright...

CORNWALL, Pa. When first we walked through the gate and into the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, it was like stepping back 400 years into a busy Elizabethan English street. Vendors and shops stretched down both sides. Lords, ladies, pirates, peasants and entertainers wandered the streets, speaking in William Shakespeare's English. Two musicians performed on a small stage. The mood was light and enthusiastic. The Renaissance fair is laid out like a village (called Mount Hope Shire)
