And Then We Masked by panniuniu


									                                  “And Then We Masked”

You are cordially invited to attend Lord Capulet’s ball. In order to enter, you must wear an
original mask that you created. You have three options when considering the kind of mask to

       1. Your mask can represent something about you. It should not require too much
       explanation. We should be able to understand your character and personality based
       on your mask.

       2. Your mask can represent a character in the play. Think carefully about each
       character’s personality traits. It should be evident to us which character you
       have chosen to portray.

       3. Your mask can represent a theme from the play. For example, there are many
       references to light and dark. Your mask could reflect the significance of such a
       theme. Again, we should be able to understand your representation.

EVERYTHING on the mask must be original – you may not buy a mask and simply glue things
on it. Do not feel the need to buy things from a craft store, but use what your parents
already have around the house (ask permission first, of course).

Here are some suggestions for mask materials:

cardboard                     stickers                       magazine pictures
markers                       hardware supplies              construction paper
ribbon                        macaroni                       sequins
aluminum foil                 fabric scraps                  coins
feathers                      glitter                        model kit supplies
crayons                       kite supplies                  felt
                              tissue paper                   paint
