Julius Caesar

Untermyer Performing Arts Council’s World Fest 2019


Julius Caesar

Performed by Hudson Valley Shakespeare

7:30 p.m.  Saturday, July 27th 2019 at Historic Untermyer Park

Shakespeare returns to Untermyer Park! UPAC presented its first performance of Shakespeare, Midsummer Night’s Dream, in 1976. Once again we are returning to that tradition and presenting a work of the Bard as interpreted by Hudson Valley Shakespeare at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 27th.

This year we are featuring William Shakespeare’s ultimate tragedy of betrayal, Julius Caesar, as performed by Hudson Valley Shakespeare. Their interpretation of the story of Julius Caesar, the charismatic war hero adored by the public yet mistrusted by his closest friends, brings this tale of violent betrayal to life.

This definitely is another “don’t miss” Untermyer Performing Arts Council World Fest 2019 evening under the stars!

The Untermyer Performing Arts Council (UPAC) was formed in 1976 to promote the appreciation of the performing arts in Yonkers and beyond. UPAC’s mission was to foster and sponsor performing arts events at the historic Untermyer Park and other venues in Yonkers. UPAC is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization that relies on public grants and private donations. To ensure accessibility and welcome the broadest public audience, all UPAC events are free and open to everyone.

In keeping with UPAC’s “WorldFest 2014” theme, this summer’s series includes performances representing nations and regions from around the world including Italy, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and Korea…to name a few. See the full schedule online at www.untermyer.org.

In addition to its popular free summer performance series at Untermyer Park, a new program entitled “UPAC on the Road” was recently launched, with support from Arts Westchester to reach new communities and partner with a variety of neighborhoods, businesses and community organizations.

Now celebrating its 39th year, UPAC continues to grow and seek new ways to serve the residents of Yonkers and the surrounding region. The motto of the Untermyer Performing Arts Council can be summed up with three “E’s”…enlighten, educate and entertain.
