On Stage

We are excited to perform in the Art Court Theatre this summer for you. We hope you will join us!

Julius Caesar 1922

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Christine Nicholson & Lori Ann DeLappe-Grondin

Edited by Christine Nicholson

“Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears.” Marc Antony, Julius Caesar

Jealous conspirators convince Caesar’s friend Brutus to join their assassination plot against Caesar. To stop Caesar from gaining too much power, Brutus and the conspirators kill Caesar on the Ides of March. Mark Antony drives Brutus and the conspirators out of Rome, and there is war.  Still Shakespeare’s original text, but set in 1922 Italy, as the rise of fascism propelled Italy toward World War II. A cautionary tale?

Celebrate with us: Join us on July 5 for a celebratory reception following the performance in the Daubert Courtyard for the Arts.

Performance Dates: July 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27 & 28

Thursdays, Fridays, & Saturdays: Performance at 7:30 pm

Sundays: Performances at 2:00 pm

Location: Art Court Theatre, Sacramento City College, located closest to 12th Ave. & Parking Lot K.

Advisory: This production has depictions of great violence and death (due to war) and the use of strobe lights.

Your visit: The theatre temperatures can vary as we have larger audiences – with this in mind, it is recommended that you bring a light jacket just in case it gets too cold, or a hand fan (no electric devices) to cool if it is too warm. We do not have direct control over the system and a call-in may not always solve it in time. Doors and house open 30 minutes prior to curtain.

Special thanks to Luther Hanson and Adrienne Sher for their edits!
