Lee Theatre to Present “Julius Caesar”
LeeU Theatre will begin its spring semester productions with Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” directed by Dr. Christine Williams, on Feb. 9-10, 15-17 at 7:30 p.m. in the Buzz Oates Blackbox Theatre.
Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” explores the story of Brutus and his conspirators as they decide to assassinate Julius Caesar. Williams’ adaptation will present the story from the perspective of a classroom of high school students.
“It is always a joy to work with a classical piece such as this,” said Williams, professor of theatre and department chair. “We are having a great time as a production team, along with the actors, to create our unique version.”
The cast for “Julius Caesar” includes Christian Arnold, Carrington Boothe, Minnie Brock, Desiree Coburn, Kate Collins, Anna Evans, Brooke Jenkins, Smith Langstaff, Noah MacDonald, Emily Miller, David Steinmetz, and Peyton Whitworth.
Tickets will be available online at Eventbrite.com or at Lee Theatre’s box office in the Communication Arts Building beginning February 1. The box office is open Wednesday through Friday during the week of shows from 4-6 p.m., as well as one hour before each performance.
The box office and the Buzz Oates Blackbox Theatre are located in the Communication Arts Building.
