ASOLO REPERTORY THEATRE

Box Office: 941.351.8000 / 800.361.8388

ASOLO REPERTORY THEATRE presents
an FSU/ Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training Production 

 

Julius Caesar
By William Shakespeare
Directed by James Dean Palmer
Adapted by Tyler Dobrowsky
Tour dates: Tuesday, September 26th, through Monday, November 20th, 2017

 

“The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.

Julius Caesar endures as a provocative examination of personal responsibility against the backdrop of great political consequences. In a fast-paced adaptation both intimate and ruthless, the next generation will have the chance to ask how each of us must weigh the greater good against the advice of friends, the roar of public opinion, the strategic advantages, the personal costs, and the compass of our own hearts.

Presented by Asolo Rep and the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training, the annual educational tour brings exciting 45-minute adaptations of classic literature to schools and community venues throughout the state of Florida. Shakespeare’s original language comes alive through energetic contemporary staging, performed by the talented young artists of the FSU/Asolo Conservatory.

WHAT IS A TOUR PERFORMANCE LIKE?

The production is professionally staged with a cast of eleven, but designed with minimal technical requirements so it can perform in a variety of venues. In 60 minutes our artists present a fast-paced performance, immediately followed by a post-show discussion with the cast. Educational resources, including a production guide and video resources for classrooms, address Florida and Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.

 

WHO SHOULD SEE THIS PRODUCTION?

This production is conceived to reach school, college, and community groups, and is recommended for grades 6 and up. This adaptation will provide an accessible introduction to live Shakespeare performance for first-time audiences, but the imaginative and theatrical staging will also delight and enrich students who have already studied Shakespeare's work. Our touring productions hope to welcome and inspire audiences at every level of experience to the wonderful possibilities contained within classic plays.
