Belmont High School Students Perform Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar"
By Mr. Falconburg
Western Heritage and Logic Teacher
Last week marked the performance of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, adapted and directed by Mrs. Carson Center. First performed in 1599, this tragedy tells the story of Brutus joining the conspiracy to assassinate Julius Caesar, thereby preventing him from ruling Rome as a tyrant. Caesar’s second-in-command, Mark Antony, gives a stirring speech that creates hostility against the conspirators, leading to a civil war. The play was performed by our middle and high school students in the historic sanctuary.
