Seventh Graders Bring Down the House in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar

JC As part of their studies of ancient Rome, Ross seventh graders performed a moving interpretation of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar on February 27 in the Senior Building Lecture Hall. The production highlighted pivotal scenes and characters from the life and death of the legendary dictator, including his shocking assassination in the Roman Senate on March 15, 44 BC.

The audience was riveted as the cast brought the famous figures to life, including Brutus, Cassius, and Marc Antony, as well as other Roman senators who conspired against their leader.

“The students worked so hard to animate this rich period of Rome,” said Gerard Doyle, Performing Arts teacher. “Shakespeare's verse can be difficult to master, and they did a wonderful job to bring this challenging play to our community.”
