Asolo Repertory Theatre Presents “Julius Caesar” at SCF, Manatee-Sarasota

(Bradenton, Fla., Oct. 12, 2017) — Arts and Letters Day at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) will kick off with a performance of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” at 9:15 a.m. Oct. 24 in the Selby Room at SCF Venice, 8000 S. Tamiami Trail. The SCF Venice departments of Language and Literature and Art, Design and Humanities will sponsor this year’s activities. The Asolo Repertory Theatre will present “Julius Caesar.”

“The theme for the day is ‘Omens in Art and Performance,’ and ‘Julius Caesar’ encapsulates this perfectly thanks to Shakespeare’s use of foreshadowing and the role of the Soothsayer,” said Doug Ford, chair of the sponsoring departments. “The public is welcome to attend the performance and any other activities for free.”

A student art show will take place throughout the day in the Venice Art Gallery, Bldg. 300. Woody McCree, associate professor in the Art, Designs and Humanities department, will address “Thomas Cole and ‘The Course of Empire’: An Omen in the Age of America’s Caesar” at 11 a.m. in the Selby Room. Under the direction of Frances Auld, SCF Honors Program students also will lead a marathon reading and discussion of Isaac Asimov’s “I, Robot” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of the Library.
