Adapted from William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar
Shakespeare’s political thriller has been set in a 1979 gangland in which we explore themes such as loyalty, honor, family, mob mentality, and self-righteousness. After Caesar defeats Pompey, he and his gang, “The Sennetors,” rule the streets. But there is unrest, as a small faction within the gang feels Caesar is overly ambitious and self-absorbed. They take matters into their own hands (literally), and the mutiny spurs a series of events in which the fate of all involved hinges on the decisions of two great warriors.
With set graffiti art by WLHS students, and plenty of stage combat, CAESAR previews on March 5 at 6pm (pay what you can). The production formally opens on March 6, and continues with performances on March 7, 12, 13, 14 in the black box studio theatre (all at 7pm).
Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students. Tickets are available online at www.wlhstheatre.org or at the PAC Box Office. The Box Office will be open during lunch on March 5 and 6.
