Cheers to the opening night of our Spring Mainstage, Julius Caesar!
by William Shakespeare
Adapted & Directed by Lary Opitz
In Shakespeare’s timeless classic, Rome is divided – while citizens in the streets cheer Caesar’s rise to power, some senators fear the potentially dangerous consequences of Caesar becoming a powerful monarch. To protect the future of Rome, senators Brutus and Cassius spearhead a plan to publicly kill Caesar. After executing their plan, Brutus is forced to defend the assassination while Marc Anthony rouses the public’s sympathy by commemorating Caesar as a brilliant leader. The crowd becomes intoxicated with fear, rage, and greed as Rome is divided in a bloody civil war.
