We’re getting close to launching our new video game, created in partnership with the University of Waterloo and Industry Corp. Soon you’ll be able to stage your very own production of Romeo and Juliet on your mobile device or tablet!
The working title of the game is Staging Shakespeare – but we want to know what name you’d give to this new virtual adventure.
Staging Shakespeare will give players a taste of how to put on a classical production at the Festival. You’ll have all the resources you need to put on a scene from Romeo and Juliet (props, costumes, lighting and sound cues) – and as you successfully create scenes, you’ll have access to more and more resources, making your way from a modest production at the Studio Theatre to a grand display on the Festival stage.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the stages and resources you’ll get to play with!
We’ll be collecting names until Friday, April 12, at which point a panel of Festival judges will select their favourite entry and we’ll announce the winning name shortly after!
