Romeo and Juliet - costumes for children

 "Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo"

Sheakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, is one of the best known and is extremely popular with schools studying the bard as part of the national curriculum.

We have recently costumed a scene for a year 5 production in medieval style with Romeo in a tudor style costume with breeches and feathered hat and Juliet in a long flowing dress with draped sleeves.

Capulet wore a silver and black tunic and trousers with distinctive hat and Tybalt a shirt and tunic with brown velvet cloak.

The rest of the year were divided into party goers or gentry , wearing either medieval style dresses with headdress or tunics, or poor villagers from stratford upon avon with drab skirt, shawl and mob cap for the girls and hat, breeches and jerkin for the boys.

Our quality costumes are suitable for all types of period productions so do give us a call on 01908 372504 or visit www.admiralcostumes.co.uk
