Synopsis: Shakespeare’s classic “Julius Caesar” brings us back to our ancestors in ancient Rome. A populace is unable to see reality through a cloud of manipulation. A leader abandoning democratic norms. A revolution becoming confused and corrupted. A powerful country in the initial stages of a great decline. The Bristol Theatre program completes the 2022/2023 season “walking backward into the future, with eyes fixed on the past”. The production is directed by Don Mays, who has worked with both the Providence Black Repertory Company and the Wilbury Theatre Group, in Providence, Rhode Island.
Bristol’s Theatre program is an Associate of Arts, in liberal arts & sciences, that provides hands-on training and experience, allowing students to learn and refine their craft as they perform. Students can smoothly transfer to a four-year institution or seek work in the performing arts. In addition to teaching history, literature and art, studying theatre also provides interpersonal communication and problem-solving skills.
