I guess I was hoping these videos would be received with … Continue reading Update on #Shakespeare’s #RomeoAndJuliet with #Dolls

All of the dolls in this video are re-painted and all of them wear wigs, in true thespian style. But in spite of their theater makeup and disguising attire, can you name the dolls? Which doll is playing the part of Romeo? Who’s playing … Continue reading Romeo and Juliet With #Dolls #StopMotion #Theater, Act 3
