Shakespeare's Julius Caesar
August 03 - August 22, 2021
Approximately 90 minutes with intermission
Appropriate for all ages; May include some violence
Event DescriptionThe Hanover Theatre Repertory (THT Rep) will perform on the steps of city hall and the Worcester Common this August through a partnership with the City of Worcester and support from the Worcester Business Improvement District. Offered free and open to the public, William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar is our gift to the community, subsidized by our generous sponsors. Together, we want to recognize the extraordinary support we’ve received throughout the pandemic while offering a safe way for people to connect through the experience of the performing arts.
A response to our nation's ongoing conflicts, Julius Caesar is equal parts political drama and civil war epic. This timely tragedy chronicles the battle for the soul of a republic and warns of what befalls when civil strife erupts in civil war.
Our immersive, energetic staging will unfold on the Worcester Common, where audience members are encouraged to wear togas and to boo and cheer alongside the action. Seating will be available in the Worcester Common Oval on a first-come-first-serve basis, while those who arrive later can bring their own lawn chairs or join the fun from a park bench.
As with all past THT Rep productions, COVID-19 safety guidelines will be enforced. Staging the production outside allows for social distancing so audiences can once again safely enjoy live theatre!
