Aquila Theatre Company Performs Julius Caesar March 26

3/16/2008 —

The Aquila Theatre Company’s production of Julius Caesar originally scheduled for March 26 at 7:30 p.m. at Penn State York’s Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (Pullo Center) has been changed to a free noon performance. This performance, originally ticketed, was changed due to the overwhelming response from area schools. Tickets are not needed for this show but groups should contact the Pullo Center for more information. This performance is open to Penn State York students, faculty, staff, and the general public.  The free 10:00 a.m. performance is full.  These are abbreviated performances of the play.  Those who purchased tickets to the evening performance can receive refunds at the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center at Penn State York.

This production follows the epic story of the rise and fall of one of the world’s most notorious leaders. Set in a world of political intrigue and strained domestic relationships, the production explores the moral and political dilemma of Marcus Brutus. Should he join the conspiracy to assassinate Caesar, conquering hero and his trusted friend? Or should he allow one man’s tyrannical ambition to overcome the very ideals that Rome was founded upon?  The choice that Brutus makes has the power to destroy the old world order and to ignite a fierce civil war. Aquila’s production asks the audience to consider the price of democracy and freedom and the consequences that can befall a society when it is asked to defend its core beliefs.  The Aquila Theatre Company is known around the world for their outstanding Shakespeare productions.
