The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival celebrates its 25th season.

As the string quartet finishes on the greens, I take the last sip of my wine; it is a beautiful evening here in Center Valley, PA.  Like so many others, we are here for the opening night of Julius Caesar for the 25th season at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.

The theater is beautiful with only 187 seats, making no bad seat in the house.  As the director, Patriuck Mulcahy, exits the stage after his welcome remarks, the audience becomes anxious. The tale begins and you immediately step into the streets of Rome cheering on glorious Caesar as he is paraded around over his victory.

No Prep Time, No Problem

In the past decade I’ve seen several plays and musicals at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival at DeSales University. So I’m familiar with the high caliber of performances by professional actors that these shows exhibit.

And it showed. Between their physical antics, playful posing, and dancing, and their word play and hilarious mispronunciations, the show entertained non-stop.

The actors occasionally engaged members of the audience, who relished their moments in the spotlight and were pretty comical themselves.
