Storyboard Description

The first major event in "Romeo and Juliet" is when Romeo and Juliet fall in love. At the Capulets' party, they meet and see each other for the first time. There, they fall in love at first sight with each other and kiss. This is also the scene where Romeo has a change of heart from Rosaline to Juliet. Their passion and certainty of their feelings for each other eventually lead to the second major event, which is their marriage. Romeo and Juliet reveal their relationship to Friar Laurence, and Friar Laurence helps them get married. Soon after their marriage, the third major event happens. Due to the Capulets and Montagues' long feud with each other, Tybalt and Mercutio get caught up in a fight. When Tybalt kills Mercutio, this triggers Romeo to kill Tybalt due to his anger of Tybalt killing his friend, Mercutio. Romeo's killing of Tybalt causes the fifth major event, which is the exile of Romeo. As a punishment, the Prince exiles Romeo from Verona and sends him to Mantua. Now that Romeo is exiled and the wedding for Paris and Juliet is scheduled, Juliet desperately tries to find a solution to the situation and goes to Friar Laurence for help. Friar Laurence gives her a potion to drink that will make her look like she is dead, and Juliet drinks it the night before the day of the wedding to get out of her wedding with Paris. Thinking that she is dead, the Capulets are really sad, and they bring her to the Capulets' tomb. Due to Friar Laurence's letter about the plan never reaching Romeo, Romeo also thinks that Juliet is dead. This leads to the sixth and seventh event. As a result, Romeo ends up drinking poison to die and be with Juliet. When Juliet finally awakens from the potion and sees Romeo dead, she kills herself with a dagger to die and be with Romeo. The death of Romeo and Juliet leads to the final and eighth major event, which is the end of the long feud. In this event, Capulet and Montague come together and make up, which finally ends the long feud between their families.
