Parker was chosen to play Romeo in his fifth grade classes version of Romeo and Juliet. He was picked because of his awesome memorizing skills and because no other boy would take the part. I know that makes Parker seem like the default Romeo, but he really did an awesome job! And he was the only boy who actually memorized all of the parts for tryouts. Mrs. Taylor said that he was the best Romeo she's ever had. He added humor, expression and romance to the part. What a STUD!
The girls all wanted to be Juliet, so they rotated with each performance. Parker worked with a total of three different Juliet's. Can you blame the girls?
Even with the hordes of attention from the older girls, Parker's heart never faltered far from his true love... Emily Jane.
