June 8. National Theatre Julius Ceasar. Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital. Live from The Bridge Theatre in London, Nicholas Hytner’s production will thrust the audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake. 7 p.m. Ticket prices are $16 for adults, $13 for seniors, and $11 for students. Buy tickets online (look for the "Purchase Tickets" button above), at the PAC box office or by calling 541-265-ARTS (2787).
