Freehold will tour Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, directed by Robin Lynn Smith, to unique locations across the greater Puget Sound area, June 28 – July 11, 2010. Realizing the power of theatre to bring about an extraordinary communion between audience and performer is at the core of Freehold's mission and at the heart of our annual Engaged Theatre tour. Since 2003, Freehold’s Engaged Theatre has toured professional Shakespeare productions to communities with little or no access to live theatre. This year the tour will again include the Washington Correctional Center for Women, the Monroe Correctional Complex for Men, Echo Glen Children’s Center, a juvenile detention center and New Futures housing community. We are also performing for the first time at American Lake Veteran’s Hospital for soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The tour concludes with performances in Seattle for the general public.

This year’s phenomenal Engaged Theatre cast includes: Reginald Andre Jackson (Brutus), Kevin McKeon (Caesar), Sylvester Kamara (Mark Antony), Susanna Burney (Cassius), Sarah Harlett (Portia), Eva Abram, Kjerstine Anderson, Shawn Belyea, Trina Harris, David Brown King, Kirsten McCory, Lisa Norman, Kate Parker, Lori Evans, and Hal Ryder. The production will include live musical accompaniment with a score composed by Gino Yevdjevich of Kultur Shock, set design by Roberta Russell, and choreography by Butoh dancer Vanessa Skantze.

Cast across gender and race lines, reflecting the diversity of our audiences, this talented company will bring this story of power, corruption and sacrifice simply and vividly to life.
