Description

Building on last year’s sweet success with A Tale that Must be Told: Macbeth, the KL Shakespeare Players (KLSP) reaches higher this a storytelling of Romeo & Juliet.


This 60-minute interactive storytelling, targets 7-to-12 year-olds, a demographic group not often catered to in programming live performances. KLSP performs, in verbatim some of Shakespeare’s language, “the fearful passage of [Romeo and Juliet’s] death marked love”. The show is developed to enable young audiences to sing, chant along and dance.


Beyond the tragedy of these “star-crossed lovers,” this storytelling presents also the drama of the destructive enmity between two families—the Montague and the Capulet--and how their “ancient grudge” spills into the present to destroy the lives of the young.


As this story ends with the death of the hero and heroine, KLSP has taken pains to unfold the situation with sensitivity and age-appropriate images. Children’s theatre specialist, Johnny Gillett, whose hand was in last year’s storytelling of Macbeth also participated in the creation of the storytelling Romeo & Juliet.


Last year’s A Tale that Must be Told: Macbeth told with dolls has been performed nearly 40 times, traveling beyond the Klang Valley to Johor Bahru, Johor; Kota Kinabalu,Sabah; Kuching, Sarawak; and overseas to Manila, Philippines and Seoul, South Korea. Under the sponsorship and support of Yayasan Hasanah and the Ministry of Education, the storytelling successfully toured to seven public primary schools.



About KL Shakespeare Players

From an informal group which started in 2011, KLSP has incorporated and established itself as the only theatre company in Malaysia that focuses on Shakespeare’s works. Each year, KLSP draws a diverse audience to watch Shakespeare performed live. And it is done without running away from Shakespeare’s language.

It is KLSP’s mission to take Shakespeare to every state in Malaysia, and eventually to all countries in Southeast Asia. This year, KLSP traveled to Manila, Philippines to perform and storytell Macbeth in two performances at the 3rd Biennial Conference of the Asian Shakespeare Association. In September it will go to Seoul for the Korean Shakespeare Festival.
