The Kentucky Shakespeare Festival: Friends, Romans, Countrymen…Join Us for a Julius Caesar Benefit Performance

April 8, 2008

Louisville, KY. (April 8, 2008) – The Kentucky Shakespeare Festival (KSF) is hosting a Julius Caesar Benefit Performance on Saturday, May 17, 2008 at 7:00 PM in the Humana Tower Theatre at 500 W Main St. to honor KSF as one of only 35 theatres nationwide to participate in the National Endowment for the Arts Shakespeare in American Communities program.  Proceeds will help cover the costs of their free Shakespeare in Central Park performances during the 2008 summer season.

Tickets are $100 each and include hors d’oeuvres and cocktails before a special 75-minute performance, and dessert and coffee after the performance.  As part of the event, guests will have the opportunity to view presentations, displays and multi-media exhibits on the conflict resolution component of this program and take part in post-show discussions with the acting company and project partners from Shakespeare Behind Bars and Audubon Youth Development Center.


Humana, Inc., Stoll Keenon Ogden, and White Clay Consulting are sponsors of the benefit.
