Shakespeare Night comes to Pellissippi State

Brutus will betray Caesar in the forum, Romeo and Juliet will find love on the balcony—and the audience will witness the theatrics.

The performances are part of Shakespeare Night in the Courtyard on the Magnolia Avenue Campus of Pellissippi State Technical Community College April 24 at 7 p.m. The public is invited.

The Magnolia Avenue Campus Drama Club will present scenes from “Julius Caesar,” “Romeo and Juliet,” “Macbeth,” “The Merchant of Venice” and “Hamlet,” said Rick Patton, associate English professor and club sponsor.

Katie Cole, club president, plays Brutus and also serves as one of the witches in “Macbeth.”

“I really think it will expose the campus to more of a classic sense of drama,” she said.

Admission and parking are free, and refreshments will be served during intermission. For more information, call Rick Patton at 865-329-3134.
