Romeo and Rosaline Characters & Plot

Have a fresh new look at a legendary classic. It’s comedy and confusion when a Troop of Travelling Players decide to perform their own interpretation of Romeo & Juliet. See what happens to Shakespeare’s most beloved tragedy when these characters unleash new perspectives, plotlines, twists, and of course – love stories !

Script: Available at the Guelph Public Library

*Due to the nature of the play we are looking for actors who are at least 17 years or older.

Rosaline – Principal Role
A Lady of wit, charm, and fierce independence, Rosaline is determined to forge her own identity in a man’s world – in spite of the pesky attentions of that foolish Romeo. This is her story.
Note: Scenes with Fencing – Instruction will be provided

Benvolio – Major Role
Romeo’s smarter, steadier friend. Andrew Batten’s script takes him out of the conventional role of ‘loyal side-kick’, and plunges him into his own story of Romance, Intrigue, Comedy & Confusion with a woman who is every bit his match !
Note: Scenes with Fencing – Instruction will be provided

Isabella – Major Role
Rosaline’s fun loving companion, Isabella takes an earthy view of life, love, and the antics of the High Born Idiots. She has a temper when roused and woe betide any man who tries to treat her as a chattel.

Mercutio – Major Role
A Renaissance jock, Mercutio is well educated, but itching for action to prove himself. Some might find him arrogant, pompous, and hopelessly childish, but he will eventually prove himself capable of mature self-reflection.
