At the end of May, a new project from Portland Stage Company will land in the city squares of downtown Portland, Maine: JULIUS CAESAR presented by BareBard! An ensemble-driven piece, director Carmen Mandley has cast a strong group of actors to bring Shakespeare's work to life in an engaging, open, accessible way: right in downtown Portland!
For the past couple of weeks we've been rehearsing on location outdoors. While traffic, birds, weather, sirens, and acoustics of the City Parks are all challenges to a project like this, the show is really coming together and has stopped many passers-by in their tracks. Especially when the broadswords and daggers are involved! #FightCall
Join us during the First Friday Art Walk in One Longfellow Square for a CAESAR TEASER - This Friday, May 1st!
5pm & 6pm. More Information: http://www.liveworkportland.org/artwalk-listing-view/13195
We will be performing the full production of JULIUS CAESAR from May 19-31 at various locations in Portland: The steps of City Hall, Monument Square, Congress Square Park, and One Longfellow Square (with a couple shows inside the Portland Stage Studio Theater).
If you see us outside at rehearsals, please take photos, videos, etc and Tweet / Instagram / Facebook us with any of the following! #BareBard #SlayCaesar #JuliusCaesar @pscinthedark @portlandstageco. Spread the word and see you there!
