Shakespearience 2018 Presents
Julius Caesar
By William Shakespeare

Recommended for grades 7-12

February 19- April 20, 2018

“Beware the ides of March.”

Shakespeare’s classic drama of intrigue and allegiance is the ultimate historical thriller and on the reading list of many schools across Idaho and the United States. Caesar has returned victorious to Rome, but amid the celebrations are crosscurrents of unrest that will threaten the very foundation of the Republic. Caesar’s best friend Brutus will be forced to decide the future of Rome and in the process will knock history off its course. This production will be the first time that the Idaho Shakespeare Festival has produced Julius Caesar for a Shakespearience tour. Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to match curriculum with a live performance of this timeless play.
