Julius Caesar

Auditions September 22-23, from 7-9p

Rehearsals Oct 1 - Oct 31 from 7-9p, Mon-Thur

(everyone will not have to come to every rehearsal)

Performs November 1-4, 2018, 7-8:30pm

Synopsis:

The Tragedy of Julius Caesar is a play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1599. It is one of several plays written by Shakespeare based on true events from Roman history.

 

Although the play is named Julius Caesar, Brutus speaks more than four times as many lines as the title character; and the central psychological drama of the play focuses on Brutus' struggle between the conflicting demands of honorpatriotism, and friendship.

CHARACTERS

Shakespeare has written 43 parts in this play, not including extras.

Shakespeare ON THE SQUARE will be casting 10-14 actors who will play multiple parts.   The script will be cut down from the original so that it is about 90 min. long (instead of three hours).

We are always looking for a diverse, inclusive cast of both genders between the ages of 15-70.  

The actors playing of Brutus and Cassius will only play those roles.

Auditioners should wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to move.
