Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” to Be Presented at CU, Monday, October 8

Athens, W.Va. – The Aquila Theatre Company will bring the epic story of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” to Concord University’s Alexander Fine Arts Center, Main Theater, Monday, October 8, 2007, at 8 p.m. as part of the Artist Lecture Series.

The story is staged in a world of political conspiracy and stressed domestic relationships and delves into the mind of Marcus Brutus and the internal moral and political dilemmas he experiences. Will Brutus join the conspiracy to assassinate Caesar, triumphing over a trusted friend and idol in Rome? The decision Brutus makes has the potential to destroy the old world order and to provoke a fierce civil war.

Peter Meineck, producing artistic director, describes the philosophy of the company as “theatrical utilitarianism, Aquila believes that the greatest works should be seen by the greatest number.”

This tour engagement of the Aquila Theatre Company is funded through Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation’s Mid Atlantic Tours program in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring program.

Admission will be $5 for adults, $4 for senior citizens and $2 for non-Concord students. For more information on this or other events at Concord University please contact the Concord University Box Office at 1-304-384-5101 or
