It rather depends on which film of Romeo and Juliet you are talking about.

The musical arrangement that she made with Romeo was in the wrong key.

Mercutio and Tybalt are both key characters in 'Romeo and Juliet' and they both are killed in Act 3, Scene 1 of the play. At the beginning of the scene, Tybalt insults Romeo in an attempt to provoke a fight but Romeo responds calmly and it is Mercutio who then fights with Tybalt. Romeo tries to stop the fight and in the confusion, Mercutio is fatally stabbed by Tybalt and shortly dies. Fuelled with rage after his friend's death, Romeo then seeks Tybalt in order to kill him. They fight, resulting in Tybalt's death.

There are many different types and examples of tragic relationships. However, any one might have distance between the two characters, irony of place and time such as in Romeo and Juliet, and a reason that the two people cannot be together. The distance between characters can be socially, in time and space, or emotionally.

The key line is the one which says that Romeo and Juliet "will, with their death, bury their parents' strife." The words "their death" should be a giveaway. "Strife" means fighting, so you should be able to figure out what will happen to the fight between their families.

From Shmoop Literature on Romeo and Juliet http://www.shmoop.com/character/literature/william-shakespeare/romeo-and-juliet/juliet.html The Juliet who sighs at the beginning of the balcony scene that Romeo would be perfect if only he weren't a Montague is not the same Juliet who tells Romeo, wonderingly, "My bounty is as boundless as the sea / My love as deep. The more I give to you / the more I have, for both are infinite" (2.2.140-142). The most intense moments of Juliet's transformation take place in the course of a single scene: Act III, Scene ii. Juliet opens the scene with the showstopper monologue, "Gallop apace you fiery-footed steeds." Juliet's impatience for the night to come and for Romeo to arrive shifts into excitement and apprehension as she anticipates being intimate with her husband. She is both joyous and jittery. http://www.shmoop.com/quote/literature/william-shakespeare/romeo-and-juliet/love.html Here is one quote but there are a bunch of others on the Quotes and thoughts pages. ROMEO O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied? JULIET ... What satisfaction canst thou have to-night? ROMEO The exchange of thy love's faithful vow for mine. JULIET I gave thee mine before thou didst request it: And yet I would it were to give again. ROMEO Wouldst thou withdraw it? for what purpose, love? JULIET But to be frank, and give it thee again. And yet I wish but for the thing I have: My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite. (2.2.132-142) Thought: Juliet is hesitant to let their love develop so quickly, but Romeo convinces her that she should embrace her feelings.

They are not the same, but they are similar. Indeed it is thought that the original Pyramus and Thisbe story is one of the sources of the Romeo and Juliet story. The key part that is similar is that one of a pair of lovers, mistakenly believing his love to be dead, commits suicide, whereupon the other lover, finding that her love is really dead, commits suicide also. In Pyramus and Thisbe, Pyramus believes Thisbe to be dead because he finds her garment stained with blood, whereas Romeo believes Juliet to be dead because he has been told by Balthazar that he saw her buried. Of course if that was all there was to it, Romeo and Juliet would be as short and as silly as Pyramus and Thisbe in Midsummer Night's Dream.

Romeo and Juliet are not in any way Petrarchan lovers. The key characteristic of Petrarch's love for Laura was that he never told her about it and she didn't return it, being married to someone else. Romeo and Juliet, on the other hand, did tell each other they loved each other, got married to each other and fully consummated their love. They are the opposite of Petrarchan lovers. Romeo was perhaps a bit like Petrarch in his Rosaline phase, although he did tell Rosaline about it, but unlike Petrarch, he stopped moping over an unattainable woman and went for an attainable one instead.

One reason Juliet died is that, unlike many of the other key characters, she wasn't touched by Jacob during a flashback in the Season 5 finale. The others apparently survived because of Jacob's protection.

The key point of the stories of Romeo and Juliet and Tristan and Isolde is that they are tragic love stories with unhappy endings. There are many romantic stories with happy endings, but none of them are tragic love stories like Romeo and Juliet or Tristan and Isolde, or Antony and Cleopatra. (You might look at the story of Troilus and Cressida as told by Chaucer and Shakespeare. Although the ending is not happy, at least the lovers are not dead. Although maybe that's worse . . .)

The Capulets and Montagues habitually fight, and the Prince has made it a capital offence to fight in public. Romeo Montague has been moping over a girl called Rosaline. These are the key points in scene 1. In scene 2 we find out that Capulet is having a party, and Romeo finds out that Rosaline is on the guest list. In scene 3 we find out that Mrs. Capulet wants Juliet to consider marrying Paris, and that she is to meet him at the party. Scene 4 does not establish any plot points. In scene 5, Romeo sees Juliet and falls for her. He introduces himself and they kiss. Meanwhile Tybalt sees Romeo at the party and wants to fight with him but is prevented.

The backspace key erases characters to the left of the cursor. The delete key erases characters to the right of the cursor.

The Delete key deletes characters to the right or in front of the cursor. The backspace key deletes characters to the left or behind the cursor.

The key characters are Hester Prynne, her daughter Pearl, Roger Chillingworth (actually Prynne), and Rev. Arthur Dimmesdale.

Just a hint to start: if what you are writing comes out all in capital letters like that, find a key on your keyboard called "Caps Lock" and press it. Thank you. Now as to Romeo and Juliet, Act II Scene 5. Juliet is of course desperate to know what Romeo has to say about their marriage, and the Nurse teases her by straying from the point and not answering Juliet's questions. Juliet's frustration is really very funny. The Nurse says something like, "I can't answer your question right now; don't be in such a hurry. Can't you see that I'm out of breath?" and Juliet answers in frustration, "How can you be too out of breath to answer when you have enough breath to tell me you're out of breath?"

Ruby, Cora, Jamie and Nate are the main characters

It is always possible to alter details of a plot without changing the outcomes. The outcome may become more and more implausible as a result, or the audience may end up sympathizing with the wrong characters. The key issue here is raised by the Nurse. "Romeo is out of the picture, so why not marry Paris?" If Romeo and Juliet had merely exchanged fervent poetry one night in Juliet's backyard, how much would we sympathize with the nurse? Quite a lot, I suspect. If Juliet complained we might see her as petulant and childish. Certainly audiences of an earlier and less indulgent era would have thought so. If Romeo and Juliet had engaged themselves to marry, we might have less sympathy for the nurse. If they had gone through a form of marriage without consummating it, we would have less still. But such a marriage could easily be annulled and certainly would have been if Capulet had found out about it. Once, however, the marriage is consummated, the bond becomes permanent. Once they had slept together and had sex with each other, they were man and wife until death parted them. The church would not annul the marriage nor divorce them. For Juliet to marry Paris would be to commit bigamy, a serious sin. Audiences of a previous time would know this and their sympathy would be entirely with Juliet.

The key lines from the play are from Act III Scene 4: Capulet: "But soft! What day is this?" Paris: "Monday, my lord." All we have to do is work back from that scene to the scene where Romeo and Juliet meet. Act III Scene 4 takes place at night, because Capulet says "'tis very late; she'll not come down tonight." We know, because in the next scene Romeo and Juliet wake up together, that this is their wedding night, which takes place the next night after the balcony scene (Act II Scene 2) which takes place on the night of the party (Act I Scene 5). In short, they met the day before the conversation between Capulet and Paris on Monday night, which means they meet on Sunday night, and talk all night Sunday until Monday morning. At 9 a.m. Juliet sends the nurse to Romeo, and after talking to him the nurse returns at noon, saying that Romeo is now waiting at church. They get married, but in the mid-afternoon the fight in which Tybalt and Mercutio are killed takes place, Romeo is banished and hides out at the Friar's place, where he plans to visit Juliet's bedroom that night. All this takes place on Monday.

Creativity is king. Doing something " out of the box" is key. Yes, key. If you'd like to be recognized, try something different--something fresh. Everyone, has seen " Romeo and Juliet. Try something innovative yet not too progressive. An audience enjoys a new scene that they can relate with: modern, yet chic. Good Luck!:)

His fun characters and humor

It is for3 main reasons: 1) to show that the familyfeudis far reaching and involves everyone in both families 2) also to involve theaudience and make them feel more alive in the play, seeing as it was not performed on a french (proscenium) stage but a stage where theaudienceloops all around the set(thrust stage) 3) to get the audience's attention before the main characters are introduced. In this way, if the audience members were still talking to their neighbours, buying oranges or beer or something, they wouldn't miss key dialogue.

The key combination is CTRL + Enter. Not sure what you mean by characters.
