NOTES:

Two characters may recite the original RJ opening Prologue before the Overture. Approximately 45 seconds. In this production will be Alexa Lane and Claire Forsberg.

#17 – Chief Watchman – has yelling lines in final scene right after Juliet’s death.

In Act Two “banishment” scene with Friar Laurence and Romeo, they may yell lines loudly, particularly in first half of scene. Check this with FOH audio so there’s no distortion.

In general, Romeo will sing with a light bell tone voice, so would recommend some compression. He needs to heard over the orchestra with a light tone so we depend on the microphone amplification for this.
