First Stage Performance!! Don't Lose, Romeo and Juliet (いざ初舞台!! 負けるなロミオとジュリエット "Iza Hatsubutai!! Makeruna Romio to Jurietto"?), dubbed Shaking Up Shakespeare in the English dub, is the 37th episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure, and also the 37th episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.


The class play "Romeo and Juliet" is being held and while Nagisa tries learning her lines she has to deal with a bossy Shiho


While the election for the class play is being held, Nagisa thinks about the previous battle for Pretty Cure. She is awoken from her thoughts when the class announces that she will be playing Romeo, while Honoka is playing Juliet. They elect Shiho as the producer, causing Kyoko and Natsuko to say that they will go the distance after they are chosen to make the costumes.

Later on, Nagisa is trying her Romeo outfit as Honoka steps out as Juliet. Right away everyone is impressed with how Honoka looks and comments on how talented Kyouko and Natsuko are, causing them to think back to when they acted as the fake-pretty cure to impress little kids. Shiho then comes out to reveal her plans of changing the story a little bit, and while others are unsure, she argues that she is allowed to do it since she was made the main producer.

Meanwhile, at the mansion of darkness, Ryuichiro wants to report the events of the two Butler Zakenna to the Evil King, but watches as they try to put blame on each other. Hidehiko comes in and decides that they shouldn't say anything unless they make another mistake. They watch the Butler Zakenna walk around and Ryuichiro decides that he will be going.

At school Nagisa tries to practice for the play but she doesn't know her lines. Shiho begins to yell at her as a result and when school ends they tell everything to Akane-san. She is highly impressed after hearing this and comments that she would like to be in a movie too, causing Nagisa to offer switching places with her.

The next day Nagisa continues to try acting, this time performing the fighting scene but she's called out for not expressing any emotions to go with the words she speaks. Shiho mentions that the festival will be in a week and while watching them, some girls comment that Shiho wants to be a producer some day. 

Later on at home Nagisa continues to practice but Mepple and Pollun call it strange. She asks them to help her by telling them that if she was to forget a line that they need to tell her. It would be bad if she was to forget such a vital thing.

After the week ends, Nagisa and Honoka prepare their outfits at the Festival when Kyouko and Natsuko come in to inform the girls that Nagisa's mother and her little brother came, along with Fujipi-senpai.


The play begins

This makes Nagisa very worried and when the play begins, she falls twice upon her entrance. Honoka (as Juliet) comes to ask Nagisa (as Romeo) if he is fine, she claims that she is and they begin to dance after introducing themselves. However, after accidentally hitting another couple, the audience begins to laugh. 

As the play goes on, Ryuichiro appears and heads to the dressing room, only to find nobody there.The play continues, with Juliet's brother seeing Romeo. Nagisa ends up forgetting her line though and asks Pollun for help, but after he speaks his Prediction, she repeats that instead. Pollun tries to say that it wasn't what he meant and this makes Nagisa repeat him again.

Performing Nagisa and Honoka

Suddenly a pair of Zakenna in armor show up and they begin to attack. The girls try to defend themselves while still in the form of Romeo and Juliet, which impresses the crowd since they assume this to be part of the play.

Mipple and Mepple suggest that they transform but the girls claim that they can't do it while being in the play. But when Juna appears he blew them backstage and the girls use this as a time to transform since they know everyone will think this is part of the play. With nothing left, the girls transform, leaving the audience speechless.

After Juna jumps onto the roof the girls follow after him and Pollun sends the girls power to use the Rainbow Bracelets. They use Rainbow Storm and chase Juna away before running back to the stage, dressed as Romeo and Juliet again. They put on an epic finale for the performance and in the end, everyone begins to clap for them.

With the play over, Nagisa quickly starts an arguement with Mepple when he comments that the play only went so well because of the other actors due to her weak performance. Fujipi shows up and compliments both girls once again, causing Nagisa to freeze up before he invites them both to the upcoming Boys' Festival. Mepple once again comments on how weak she acts after he leaves and Pollun asks her if she likes Fujipi. Nagisa gets very red at this and angrily chases the fairies around the room.
