Councilman James Brings A New Year Of “Shakespeare In The Parks” With “Julius Caesar” On Thursday March 30th

It is a classic story of politics, intrigue, deception, betrayal and murder of a political leader. It is not a story of Washington DC but instead a classic tale of politics in ancient Rome.

Councilman David James (D-6) and other Metro Council members are kicking off a fourth year of “Shakespeare in the Parks” with a free production of “Julius Caesar” on March 30th at the Parkhill Community Center.

“Once again, Kentucky Shakespeare takes to the road around Metro Louisville to present the arts to many areas of our community,” says James. “Shakespeare in the Parks brings the arts to all areas of our city.”

Over 57 years, Kentucky Shakespeare, a not-for-profit charitable organization, professional theatre company, and the oldest free Shakespeare Festival in the United States has been offering free Shakespeare in Central Park in Old Louisville during the summer.

This year, “Shakespeare in the Parks” will bring an 85 minute, six actor version of Julius Caesar at 6:00pm at the Parkhill Community Center, 1703 S 13th Street.

“Thanks to Councilman James and the residents of District 6, we’re thrilled to also bring our free spring Shakespeare in the Parks to the Parkhill Community Center,” says Matt Wallace of Kentucky Shakespeare. “We are grateful for Councilman James and all he’s done to champion the arts in this city.”

This year “Shakespeare in the Parks” has a touring schedule of 23 locations in the Metro Louisville area from March 26th through May 19th.
