Rice Theatre offering final performances of ‘Julius Caesar’

Rice Theatre is presenting three more shows of William Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” at Hamman Hall at 8 p.m. Oct. 6-8.

Although the play begins with Caesar’s return to Rome in triumph after the war, there is already discontent among some who say that Caesar desires to be king. Throughout the play, the audience will be confronted with characters who wrestle with what ambition is and how power is used, according to the play’s director, Jack Young, lecturer in Rice’s Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts.

Tickets are $5 for Rice students; $8 for Rice alumni, faculty, staff and senior citizens; $10 for general admission; and $5 per person for groups of 10 or more. Tickets are available in advance at 713-348-4005. For more information on the performances, visit http://arts.rice.edu.
