    <strong><span style="font-size: 20px;"><a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/967285">Click here to RSVP</a></span></strong><br /> <br /> Although the struggle for England's throne was never simple, the kingdom lasted for over a millennium before the sovereignty passed outside a direct familial line. But when an inept ruler &mdash; indecisive, frivolous and vain &mdash; angered the established nobility, one man interceded in the transition of power and sparked a civil war that would last 86 years.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Shakespeare &amp; Leadership features a staged reading of excerpts from the play, performed by leaders from the business community alongside professional actors. The reading is followed by a panel discussion in which the participants address leadership questions and themes raised in the text.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <em>Presented by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company<br /> </em>

  • Julius Caesar
    Julius Caesar Full Details [X]
    8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

    <a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/967215"><strong><span style="font-size: 20px;">Click here to purchase tickets</span></strong></a><br /> <br /> By William Shakespeare<br /> Directed by Adam Sanders<br /> <br /> Rome&rsquo;s most powerful citizens plot the assassination of the city&rsquo;s ruler, Julius Caesar, to save the republic and prevent the establishment of a monarchy. In the wake of their bloody deed, though, the city must confront the consequences of their political idealism, and the true rationale behind their actions. What underlying motivations will be revealed? Honor? Greed? Patriotism? Ambition? Julius Caesar offers a timely perspective on the rhetoric of political leaders and its scrutiny by the citizens they govern.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> This production is part of CSC&rsquo;s &ldquo;Stage 2&rdquo; series for young audiences, and features the CSC2 roster of early-career actors. In addition to this public performance, CSC is offering six weekday matinee performances May 8&ndash;16 for students from area middle and high schools.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <em>Presented by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company</em>
