Power, Betrayal & Honor + Live Music
+ Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s Signature Feast for the Senses

When democracy is threatened, how far will the people go to protect it?

Just in time for election season, Sweet Tea Shakespeare presents William Shakespeare’s highly political piece, Julius Caesar. This is a Limited Run for 3 Performances only November 17-19 at Mercedes-Benz of Fayetteville.

William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar explores the themes of power, betrayal, and honor. Amber James revisits this classic tale with a fresh lens, crafting a narrative that speaks to the modern audience while respecting the essence of the original script. Whether you are a Shakespeare aficionado or a newcomer, you will find yourself at the edge of your seat, immersed in the dynamic world of Julius Caesar.

Staged simply and designed for our fall school tour, these public performances run approximately 75 minutes, with time for fellowship and fun before and after the performances.
