Students/Alumni/Staff Shakespeare

Now is the time of night! Come see a new twist on one of The Bard’s most famous plays!

Five friends secretly convene in the middle of the night to act out the tragic tale of Julius Caesar. They soon become swept away as their own prejudices and personal vendettas begin to parallel the lives of the characters in distant Rome. Alliances and rivalries are turned upside down when the fun of play-acting takes a serious turn as Shakespeare’s poignant drama begins to hit home. Five actors with no set, no costume changes, and only candlelight bring the essence of this classic play vividly alive with the sheer theatricality of this all too timely story.

Featuring CBT favorites Gracie Belt, Emily Helton, Hannah Jones, Danielle Pressley, and Lauren Winder and adapted & directed by David Ratliff. Original music by Eric Sorrels and fight choreography by local artists Carolyn Corley & JP Schuffman.
