Event Description

The Hanover Theatre Repertory (THT Rep) will perform on the steps of city hall and the Worcester Common this August through a partnership with the City of Worcester and support from the Downtown Worcester Business Improvement District. 

Offered free and open to the public, William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar is the Hanover Theatre's gift to the community, subsidized by generous sponsors. Together, the purpose is to recognize the extraordinary support received throughout the pandemic while offering a safe way for people to connect through the experience of the performing arts.  

A response to our nation's ongoing conflicts, Julius Caesar is equal parts political drama and civil war epic. This timely tragedy chronicles the battle for the soul of a republic and warns of what befalls when civil strife erupts in civil war.  

The immersive, energetic staging will unfold on the Worcester Common, where audience members are encouraged to wear togas and to boo and cheer alongside the action.

COVID-19 safety guidelines will be enforced. Staging the production outside allows for social distancing so audiences can once again safely enjoy live theatre! 

Performance dates include three public preview performances August 4-6 followed by public performances from August 7-22, with flexibility for rain dates.
