2018 Fall Matinee Program
THE TRAGEDY OF JULIUS CAESAR
Shakespeare's tragedy is a political thriller in which politics collide when Brutus and chef 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.
Fall matinees create an environment where a student can interactively learn about history, society, and theatre. After each performance, students are given a chance to ask the actors and crew questions about their experiences, which can create an educational dialogue.
GVT is able to show children the impact live theatre can have on society in everything from the diverse career opportunities to the power to effect great change through artistic expression. An opportunity like this is not readily available to students in other parts of this state, or this country, and is one example of the incalculable value of GVT’s Education Program.
If you have any questions before or on the day of your matinee, please call GVT’s Education Office at 304-645-3838 ext. 111.
School matinees will take place September 21-October 5. Student tickets are $8. Teachers and bus drivers get in for free.
This production is recommended for grades 7-12. In order to book a new matinee, GVT requires a minimum of 60 tickets reserved. If you would like to bring a group smaller than 60, contact us and we will pair you with another smaller group on a date that works for everyone.
