Fun with Shakespeare

Friends are staying with us, so the girls wanted to get our ALL of their Shakespeare scripts to go over them with their friends. The result? Really silly Shakespeare adaptations that the four of them repeat endlessly until they have just the emphasis and the humor that they are seeking.   THEN the repeat themselves just for the general joy of it.  Their enthusiasm is fabulously engaging, if also agonizingly taxing with the repetition. I do love that they are such literature geeks.

This is an adaptation from Julius Caesar:  "Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your SMARTPHONES.  I come to text Caesar, not to call him.  But my phone is so old that I can't text him, so if you have a phone that can text please call 1-800-Marc-Anthony."  Oh my gosh did they have fun with that!
