What is the main event that you will be discussing?
Who? What? Where? When? Where?
What are the ten most important facts that people need to know about this event?
Headline: Prince of Denmark Has Innocent Messengers Killed
What: he has Rosencrantz and Guildenstern killed.
Where: On the way to England
The two were carrying a letter ordering Hamlet's death. They didn't know it. He switched letters -- put in one ordering them killed. For the rest of the facts, you can get into why he didn't feel bad about it.
I would use a headline like: Royal Bloodbath! At least six are slain!
Ambassadors from England, bearing sad news of the demise of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern--or was it Guildenstern and Rosencrantz? No matter-- were shocked to discover a horrible scene of bloodshed and tragedy in the castle.
Why don't you use the starter that I made above and then add on to it? I think it is hilarious and pretty durn good, personally. :) I bet your teacher will appreciate the joke about Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. A sort-of joke in the play is that you can hardly tell them apart.
