Julius Caesar Presentation
Togas, jugglers, and Roman pillars filled the auditorium of the Park Heights JCC as excitement built on Sunday, February 19th. Forty 7th and 8th presented Julius Caesar in Three Acts. They represented Roman nobility such as Caesar (Rafi Rose), Brutus (Ami Roth), Cassius (Avi Lowenthal), and Mark Antony (Shaul Baruch Flamm). There was no shortage of conspirators, intrigue, betrayal and murder! There were even two living statues (Yeshiya Silverman and Shlomo Shaw) and a very professional tech crew (Meir Soskil and Eliezer Lowenstein) as well as very competent prop and stage managers (Yehuda Green, Yanky Lowenbraun and Moisheleh Frand). The lights lowered and for one hour over 300 spectators were spellbound by classic narrators regaled in togas and modern narrators in casual clothes discussing events spun by William Shakespeare set in ancient Rome. Was Caesar too ambitious? Was Cassius worried that Caesar would become a tyrant? Was Brutus easily manipulated for the sake of honor? Mrs. Strimber?s 8th grade honors class confidently portrayed each character, each emotion, each dramatic moment culminating in world famous funeral speeches. With the professional theatrical guidance of Mrs. Miriam Bazensky and her colleague, Ms. Sharon Weaver, the TA rendition of Julius Caesar in Three Acts was a runaway success! Thank you so much to Mrs. Strimber for her countless hours of work devoted to this project and to the boys? success!
