7:00 PM Stage: Julius Caesar "Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once."

Though Caesar is beloved by the people of Rome, after his latest military triumph, senators Brutus and Cassius sense a dictator in the making. But the honorable Brutus faces a wrenching decision: stage a coup for the sake of country, or stay loyal to Caesar.

The Old Globe's intimate arena stage gives you an up-close seat for Shakespeare's masterful tale of cunning diplomacy, fast-shifting alliances and the unpredictable consequences of betrayal. The classical actors of tomorrow, now training in The Old Globe and University of San Diego Shiley Graduate Theatre Program, expertly perform one of the world's great plays.

A joint venture of the Globe and USD, the Shiley Graduate Theatre Program nationally recruits seven students each year to participate in an intensive two-year course of graduate study in classical theatre. Private funding for the Master of Fine Arts in Theatre program has been contributed through a generous endowment established by Donald and Darlene Shiley. Additional support for the program is provided by the Dorothy Brown Endowment Fund and the Louis Yager Cantwell Foundation
