Julius Caesar (grades 6-12)

Thru April 2018
45 minutes
Caesar's power is growing, and it's making his peers nervous. A group of conspirators plot his demise, and his friend Brutus is placed at a crossroads. What happens when your friends are up to no good? How do you develop the courage to speak up when something isn't right? This classic play speaks volumes about how to intervene in a planned violent attack.

Download Study Guide

Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s touring program uses live performance and the latest school violence research – students improve their Shakespeare literacy AND learn intervention strategies they can use effectively when they see mistreatment happening around them.

How does it work? Professional actors from CSF perform an abridged Shakespeare play onsite at your school (no field trips required), followed by classroom workshops that help students connect situations in the play to situations they face every day. Students can step into the shoes of characters from the play and roleplay creative solutions.

Pricing: $650-$1200
Subsidies available for qualified schools.
