Aquila Theatre Co. will bring one of the world’s most notorious leaders to life when it presents “Julius Caesar” at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 24, in the Drama Theatre of the Performing Arts Center at Frostburg State University, with a pre-performance discussion beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Set in a world of political intrigue, “Julius Caesar” explores the moral and political dilemma of Marcus Brutus, Julius Caesar’s friend and opponent. Aquila’s unique production asks the audience to consider the price of democracy and the consequences that can befall a society when it is asked to defend its core beliefs. The educational dialogue at 6:30 p.m., hosted by members of the Aquila Theatre Co., is designed to give the audience a greater understanding of the company’s work and will set the stage for the later performance at 7:30 p.m.
