A tightly edited contemporary version of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar has been performing at Miami-Dade County Public Schools for the past month. This production is under the direction of FIU Associate Professor, Phillip Church, and features 7 dynamic actors, all FIU Theatre Alumni. It is produced in collaboration with WhatIfWorks, Inc. Complete with multi-media video and imagery, it has lifted Shakespeare’s language off the page and into the lasting memory of every student who has attended. By the end of the tour, we will have reached thousands of students from 15 schools and performed the production 26 times!
