OPENING ON THE IDES OF MARCH (MARCH 15) TICKETS ON SALE BEGINNING FEBRUARY 22!
March 15 – April 8, 2018
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Bill Peters
Park Hall, 9400 Mill St. Ben Lomond
Some scholars believe Shakespeare chose to open his new Globe Theatre with Julius Caesar. The play is an uncompromising examination of how a society, faced with an internal drift to tyranny, can slip into civil war, and revert overnight to barbarism. A tragedy without clear-cut villains and heroes, Julius Caesar is as fresh today as it was on that opening night over 400 years ago.
Much of the work of Director Bill Peters over the past fifteen years has centered on directing the works of Shakespeare. His MCT production of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors – both the last time MCT presented Shakespeare and the last time Bill directed for MCT – was named Best Comedy of 2003 by the Santa Cruz Sentinel.
The cast comprises both MCT favorites and newcomers to MCT, including David Leach as Caesar, Nat Robinson as Antony, Peter Gelblum as Brutus, Andrew Davids as Cassius, Ann McCormick as Calpurnia, Scott Kravitz as Casca, Rick Kuhn as Cinna, Robin Aronson as Portia, Tom Goldrup as the Soothsayer, Rita Wadsworth as Artemidorus, April Bennett as Decius, Jocelyn McMahon as Lucia, Ward Willats as Trebonius, and Sam Richie as Octavius.
