Julius Caesar

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Sara Bruner

Children age two and older are welcome to attend Great Lakes Theater performances.

Run Time: 2 hours & 30 minutes (including intermission)

A timeless drama of intrigue, allegiance and conspiracy, Julius Caesar is the ultimate political thriller. Caesar’s triumphant return from war causes concern about one person’s pursuit of too much power. Machiavellian machinations result in resounding consequences and throw an empire into turmoil. Shakespeare’s politically-charged play reverberates through the ages and poses questions that we still seek answers to centuries later.

The National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest presents Shakespeare in American Communities. Great Lakes Theater is one of 40 professional theater companies across the nation selected to perform a Shakespeare play with a professional team of actors for middle- and high-schools and conduct related educational activities for students.

Generous support for Julius Caesar is provided by John and Barbara Schubert.
