The 21st season of one of our region’s most popular outdoor theatrical events concludes with the Kingsmen Shakespeare Company’s production of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar weekends July 21 through Aug. 6.
Based upon some of the most famous historical characters from ancient Rome, Shakespeare gives us a world of political intrigue and deception that could be ripped from 21st-century headlines. To what ends will people go to gain power? What is the effect of extreme violence? What is an honorable leader?
These and other questions are posed in this fast-moving political thriller presented in unique staging and directed by John Slade.
Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday July 21-23, July 28-30 and Aug. 4-6.
General admission is $20 for adults and free for those under 18. Reserved lawn boxes are available online for $90 to $110, with room for six. Parking is available in the lots at the corner of Olsen Road and Mountclef Boulevard.
Kingsmen Shakespeare Company is the professional theater company of Cal Lutheran. In addition to the summer Shakespeare Festival shows, the nonprofit organization coordinates apprentice programs for professional and aspiring Shakespearean actors, a spring educational tour program in local elementary schools, and summer theater camps for youth.
