Live Cinema: Royal Shakespeare Company's "Julius Caesar"

Press Release: Live Cinema – “Julius Caesar” – June 14

A Live Cinema screening of “Julius Caesar” by the Royal Shakespeare Company in England will take place at Gesa Power House Theatre on Wednesday, June 14 at 6:00 p.m.
“Julius Caesar” marks the beginning of The Rome Season (“Julius Caesar”, “Antony & Cleopatra”, “Titus Andronicus”, “Coriolanus”) – four of Shakespeare’s plays which are all set in Rome. Following his sell-out productions of Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of Don Quixote (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action of “Julius Caesar”.
In this epic political tragedy, Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power. The race to claim the empire spirals out of control and turns to betrayal and violence.
The Live Cinema series features current productions by the Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal Ballet, and Royal Opera. Direct from England, these professional productions are filmed live and rebroadcast later to select international screens.
This screening runs about 3 hours including one intermission.

Reserved seating tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online (www.phtww.com ) or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

About the Gesa Power House Theatre

The historic Gesa Power House Theatre is a world-class, 300-seat performing arts venue, located in downtown Walla Walla. The 120-year-old building was once the Walla Walla Gas Plant, built to produce coal gas used to light the streets, businesses, and homes of Walla Walla. In 2011 the Gesa Power House Theatre building was transformed into a state-of-the-art playhouse for live performance. The interior design of the theatre was inspired by Shakespeare’s own intimate Blackfriars Theatre in London, England.

The Gesa Power House Theatre is on the Washington State Building Preservation Commission list of State historic buildings and on the National Register of Historic Places. The venue also hosts a variety of other cultural events, musical concerts, and private events (including weddings).
