Bag & Baggage: Julius Caesar
Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza
150 E. Main Street
August 1 to 17, 2013: Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 7:30 pm
The Tragedy of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare is one of the most powerfully relevant of all the Bard’s plays. Performed outdoors in front of Hillsboro’s Civic Center Plaza, Bag&Baggage Artistic Director Scott Palmer will stage this incredible psychological drama in the round, with audience members on all sides, putting them in the very center of the intrigue, betrayal and treachery that is at the heart of Shakespeare’s greatest history play.
Incorporating the original source materials Shakespeare used when writing his play, and starring an all-female cast of B&B favorites, Palmer has updated and modernized the tale so that it fits perfectly, and hauntingly, in our own time. Julius Caesar will be an outdoor performance unlike anything you have ever experienced.
9 performances: August 1 to 17, 2013: Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm
Tickets: $18 per person, all ages.
