-A wealthy nobleman, enemy to (Lord)Montague, and Juliet's father.

-Lady Capulet's nephew (Juliet's cousin).
-A servant who has cared for Juliet since she was an infant

The scene starts off with a bit of comic relief to remove some of the tension readers had built up in the last scene. Capulet convinces everybody to start dancing by insulting the ladies right before he tells those crashing his party how he is getting to old for some of the things people are doing here.
Romeo who was depressed the whole way to the party, finally sets eyes on Juliet completely forgetting about Rosaline. He is absolutely astounded by her beauty, so much in fact that he says he hasn't felt true love u til this very moment. Just then Tybalt spots him instantly recognizing him.
Tybalt brings the mater to his uncle, who despite being a Capulet decides to let Romeo stay at the party because he has heard that he is actually a good boy. This infuriates Tybalt but he is forced to endure Romeo's presence. Shortly after this, Romeo finally decides to introduce himself to Juliet after gawking at her for the entire party. Within 14 lines these two fall in love and kiss, twice. When the guests start to depart Romeo decides that it is time for him to leave. It is only after their interaction and separation do the two star-crossed lovers find out that the person they feel so much lust for is supposed to be their sworn enemy. Regardless they refuse to stop loving each other which cause Romeo to seek her out in the very next scene.
