Julius Caesar, Junior (Grades 6-12)
If you are staging it as RT, hang signs around each characters neck telling the audience the name of that character. (JULIUS CAESAR, MARK ANTONY, BRUTUS, CICERO, etc.). Since most RT productions do not involve much stage movement, ask some of the other characters who have smaller parts to hold up large signs at the proper moments to inform the audience which stage movements are happening at the time. For example: CAESAR AND ANTONY EXIT, CINNA ENTERS, CASCA STABS AND
THE OTHERS FOLLOW, CASSIUS DIES, CAESAR'S GHOST ENTERS, etc.)
