    The Ides of March in Union Square: The Death of Caesar at the Roman Forum

    1:00pm - 4:00pm

    Union Square, Somerville, MA

    Friends, Somervillians, Countrymen... lend us your ears!

    Celebrate the Ides of March and mark the 2,058th anniversary of the assassination of Julius Caesar in Union Square. This March 15th, Large & Elaborate Productions along with theSomerville Arts Council will transform the heart of Union Square into a Roman forum. Visit the togamaster to be outfitted in a complimentary toga and laurel, battle your friends to the death* (*actual death not recommended) in the gladiator arena, cheer on chariot races, and practice your assassination chops with Pin-the-Knife-on-Caesar. Show off your numerals-deciphering skills in the Roman numerals bee, form a team for the Romanesque trivia contest, and prep your pets for the "Dogs of War" pet costume contest (contact us if your pet would like to participate). There will be Roman engineering crafts for kids and, for the big kids, a toga party at the Independent after the event.

    During your time at the Forum, you're also likely to witness conspiracy, political intrigue, dangerous ambition, and wildly-adapted Shakespeare as the tragedy of Julius Caesar unfolds on and off the Forum stage. Spoiler alert: Caesar must die.

    1:00 PM - The Forum opens
    1:30 PM - Roman numeral bee *

    BUCKET LIST. A time-travelling, overachieving grad student must tackle questions of love and family while dodging a jealous academic rival, all out of linear order. Directed by Andy Hicks.

    THE NANOBOTS. A human and an alien decide to give a serious relationship a go with the help of advanced nanotechnology. Will they make it? Directed by Wanda Strukus.

    REAL. A retired veteran from the losing side of a war uses virtual reality to make a fresh start, but how long can he keep going? Directed by Amy Bennett-Zendzian.

    Sea Change Theatre Company Presents Cariboo Magi by Lucia Frangione


    BEVERLY, MA - - Sea Change Theatre Company presents Lucia Frangione's Cariboo Magi, A holiday tale filled with a drunken minister, a saloon keeper, an aging dancing girl and the last of the Mohicans. Join us for some hilarious cartoonish Christmas fun! Cariboo Magi will run December 12th through December 21st in the performance space inside Dane Street Church at 10 Dane Street in Beverly, MA.


    A drunken, Anglican minister who has failed to convert anyone in ten years, an avaricious saloon keeper with a murder in her past, an aging, pregnant dancing girl, and a man who claims to be the last of the Mohicans all need a new lease on life. They intercept a contract meant for a San Diego theatre company, form a bedraggled troupe of players, and head north, through the wilds of the Cariboo gold rush to perform at the Theatre Royal in Barkerville. Frangione's characters are brought to life by Amanda Collins of Beverly, Christopher Donahue of West Newbury, Jacquelyn Weatherbee of Salem, Matthew Schwabauer of Beverly.


    Cariboo Magi show dates are Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays December 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21. Friday shows’ curtains rise at 8 p.m., Saturday shows begin at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday shows begin at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for children, students, and seniors. Tickets may be purchased in advanced online at www.seachangetheatre.com; by phone at 978-500-3885 or email at info@seachangetheatre.com; or day of the performance at the door for $20 for adults and $12 for children/students/seniors.
    This two act comedy runs 90 minutes and is supported in part by a grant from the Beverly Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, and by Dane Street Church of Beverly.
