Romeo and Juliet modified.
Two mischievous friends from Montaque High: Home of the Lions, are walking down the street, talking when they run into the SGA vice president from the rival school, Capulet High: Home of the Wolves. Sampson decides to taunt the other man and starts a brawl in the streets. After a failed attempt to put an end to the fight, the rivaling SGA presidents, Benvolio and Tybalt end up caught in the madness. The matter soon escalates until even the principals of the schools are caught up in the action. Finally, Escalus, the principal of Verona University, a prestigious college in the area, comes and puts an end to the fight.
Once everyone is gone, Montaque turns to Benvolio and asks him if he has seen Romeo, the star student at the school Montaque High. Benvolio says he has not been arriving to his classes and when he does, he often sits at the back of the classroom, moping and not truly paying attention nor speaking to anyone. Principal Monteque asks Benvolio as his fellow student to talk to him as he is in no position to so as the principal. Romeo approaches the scene and inquires about the fight that occurred there. The principal takes his leave and Benvolio speaks to Romeo about why he seems so down lately. He learn that Romeo is in love with a girl who doesn't go to their school and is completely uninterested. Benvolio tries to tell him to get over her but Romeo insists that he must have her and no one else.
Principal Capulet speaks to Paris, a Verona University student, about dating his daughter, Juliet. Telling him that when she gets older, he should ask her out. Capulaet then sends out a student to go find people to come to the dance at the school. The boy approaches Romeo and Benvolio. The boy tells them that this dance is at Capulet High and as long as you're not a Lion, they are welcome to come and have some fun before scurrying off. Benvolio and Romeo both understanding the meaning of Lion, return to their conversation but Benvolio insists on going to this dance, considering all of the girls that will be there. Romeo reluctantly agrees but insists that none will beat out the girl he's got his eye on.
Meanwhile, in Capulet high, Juliet is speaking with her favorite guidance counselor when her mother, the vice principal, walks in demanding privacy to have a word with her daughter. Realizing that the guidance counselor would be a greater help to the conversation, she calls her back, only to have the woman talk about Juliet's mental stability and recent boy troubles. Vice principal Capulet goes on to tell her daughter about the benefits of dating a man with a degree, much like Paris will be, until a student comes into to tell that the dance has begun.
Romeo and Benvolio enter the dance shamelessly. Mercutio then comes up and tells Romeo that he should dance. Romeo told Mercutio that he wasn’t going to. The two argues on whether or not Romeo was going to dance or not. Mercutio tries to convince Romeo into dancing but Romeo still says no. Later but not too long after their previous conversation, Romeo announces that he had a dream. Mercutio said that he had a dream too. Romeo wanted to know what his dream was about but he didn’t know that Mercutio wasn’t a fan of dreams. Mercutio told him that he had a dream that dreamers lie very often. Romeo tried to prove his point that Mercutio was wrong.
Principal Capulet arrives welcoming everyone. Not only did he have a talk with the guests but he then brings the musicians out to play. As the music was playing and everyone was dancing, Principal Capulet talks to his cousin. Capulet’s cousin reminds him that they are past their dancing days. While they have their conversation, Romeo finds Juliet and has a small conversation with her. During that conversation, Romeo kisses Juliet. The nurse came and told Juliet that her mother needed to speak to her. As Juliet walks away looking for her mother, Romeo was curious about who her mother was. The Nurse had explained to Romeo who Juliet’s mother was. Later on, everyone had left and the only two people remaining were Juliet and the Nurse. Juliet asked the nurse about Romeo. The Nurse explained everything about Romeo to Juliet.
