Caesar's assassination is just the halfway point of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. The first part of the play leads to his death; the second portrays the consequences. As the action begins, Rome prepares for Caesar's triumphal entrance. Brutus, Caesar's friend and ally, fears that Caesar will become king, destroying the republic. Cassius and others convince Brutus to join a conspiracy to kill Caesar.

AVAILABLE ROLES

Julius Caesar: A man who has lost perspective because of absolute power; ambitious; would rather march into the arms of death than be considered a coward; capable of huge ego, grandeur, and arrogance.

 

Brutus: A soldier and a statesman; the smartest person in the room; measured; he chooses what he feels is best for the well-being of Rome over his loyalty to Caesar; eventually, he sacrifices himself rather than be captured by the enemy.

 

Mark Antony: Well-spoken and ever loyal to Caesar, Antony always has a calculated political agenda; a politician; uses speech as his main weapon against his enemies; something of a playboy, fond of partying, but when he needs to, he can become focused and powerful.

 

Cassius: A passionate radical; the leader of the anti-Caesar conspirators; able to convince Brutus to act against Caesar; like Brutus, a celebrated soldier.

 

Lucius: Brutus’ loyal servant. Must be able to sing, and accompany himself proficiently on a stringed instrument.

 

Casca: One of the inner circle of the conspirators; blunt and outspoken in manner; rude and sour to a sometimes humorous effect.

 

Octavius Caesar: Arrives in Rome to avenge Caesar’s death; a soldier who has no sympathy for his enemies, but his youthful enthusiasm sometimes carries him away.

 

Portia: Brutus’ wife; she is true and honorable; as the daughter of a famous general and wife to Brutus, she is capable of their toughness and courage, although it may come as a surprise to some.

 

Calpurnia: Married to Caesar and perhaps a bit of a trophy wife; usually a calm and rational woman, she is rattled by the strange events and prophecies taking place in Rome and does everything she can to keep her husband from leaving home on the ides of March; dignified, but starting to lose control of her fears.

 

Ensemble:  Citizens, Senators, Officers, Soldiers, etc.
