Watch a LIVE STREAMING of Julius Caesar on Saturday, March 5 at 8 p.m. (the stream will begin at 7:50 p.m.)
What happens when citizens are influenced by the most recent argument, or by the loudest voice emerging from the crowd, or by messages rooted in fear? Find out as the Goshen College Theater Department presents William Shakespeare’s cautionary tale, Julius Caesar, in Umble Center on March 4, 5, 11 at 8 p.m.; March 6, 12, 13 at 3 p.m.
Shakespeare’s famous tragedy will engage the audience in the story of patriotism and power; jealousy and betrayal; twists of friendship; warnings unheeded; and the mob mentality of citizens whose loyalty is easily swayed.
For this performance, theater students have transformed Goshen College’s Umble Center into a “theater in the round,” meaning that the audience will be seated on all sides of the stage.
The cost is $10 general, $5 students/seniors/GC employees. Tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.goshen.edu/tickets or through the Welcome Center at (574) 535-7566 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets can also be purchased at the Umble Center box office one hour before the show. There will be a 10-minute intermission.
