Animal Fire Theatre presents: Julius Caesar

Event: 
Thu, 07/18/2013 - 6:30pm - 9:00pm

ANIMAL FIRE THEATRE PRESENTS:

Julius Caesar

By William Shakespeare

 

Animal Fire Theatre is proud to announce that our 2013 Shakespeare in the Park production will be Julius Caesar. 

 

In a time when politics often become personal and political figures are alternatively traitors or heroes, Julius Caesar remains a relevant exploration of political power and struggle.  This production provides a raw look at the show and reveals how personal revenge and political rhetoric are so frequently intertwined.  We invite you to see this timeless piece of political tragedy staged only footsteps away from our own Capitol Building. "How many ages hence shall this our lofty scene be acted over in states unborn and accents yet unknown!"

 

AFT welcomes guest director Jenny Greenlee and is thrilled to present this powerful take on an ageless story of political and personal power. Performances are scheduled to run for three weekends. The dates are Thursdays through Sundays, July 18-21, 25-28 and August 1-5. All performances will be at 6:30 P.M. This year we will be performing on the Capitol Campus, in the Water Garden on the East side of the campus near the Korean War Memorial. All performances will be free to the public. We recommend that audience members bring a cushion or folding chair for their comfort. Information about how to park for free, how to use Intercity Transit's Dash Shuttle and our weather policy will be available on our website: www.animalfiretheatre.com.
