The Tragedy of Julius Caesar
Shakespeare’s tragedy is a political thriller in which politics collide when Brutus and chief conspirator, Cassius, intervene to stop Caesar’s rise to absolute power. Instead of redeeming the republic, their regicide throws the country into chaos. GVT’s production will put a contemporary spin on Shakespeare’s classic play.

Greenbrier Valley Theatre’s Youth Education Program operates with a mission to provide ongoing, inclusive, quality education in theatre and the performing arts.
Each season, GVT’s eclectic programming takes audiences to places near and far, real and imagined. Together, we have traveled the world, from Chicago’s Cook County Jail to a Russian cherry orchard and from a Monte Carlo casino to the memory of Maycomb, Alabama. Through theatre, the Curtain Up! Campaign (previously the Annual Campaign) will bring the world to West Virginia.
