1. Take all of Shakespeare’s characters.

2. Divide them into teams of heroes[include Falstaff as a hero] and villains.

3. Use Hamlet as the hero and Juliet as the heroine.

4. Use Richard III as the villain and Lady Macbeth as the villainess [get rid of Macbeth first].

5. Use the plots of the Shakespearean plays as your back stories.

6. Make finding Shakespeare [and obtaining his quill] the goal of the competition.

7. Create your own mock Shakespearean dialogue.

8. Shake well.

Doesn’t that sound like fun? It is and perfect for summer.
