JULIUS CAESAR
July 13 & 14

Bannerman Castle Trust presents Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival in William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.

A charismatic war hero on the brink of kingship, Caesar is celebrated by the people of Rome — but mistrusted by some of his closest friends who fear his popularity will throw the country into chaos. Plots are hatched and factions emerge, and in the end, 23 daggers and the fall of a few guilty players lead The People to violent justice. The immersive, 90-minute production, will help bring this anachronistic tale of betrayal to life.

ARSENIC AND OLD LACE
July 25, 26, 27 & 28

Bannerman Castle Trust presents Theatre on the Road in Joseph Kesseling’s Arsenic and Old Lace.

These sisters really have a secret!
The comic mayhem of Arsenic and Old Lace, Joseph Kesseling’s most famous play, has made it a true classic. Much like Abby and Martha’s secret “arsenic” recipe, the combination of screwball comedy and gothic chills is a potent mix, sure to send a few delicious shivers up your spine – but don’t worry, we promise you won’t die laughing.

DRACULA
September 28 & 29, 2019

Bannerman Castle Trust presents Theatre on the Road in Dracula by Crane Johnson.

THEATRE ON THE ROAD presents DRACULA
by Crane Johnson

Everyone is familiar with the dark tale of Dr. Seward, his fiancée, Lucy, and their mysterious neighbor, Count Dracula, but here the events take on intensified effect through the heightened action and simplified staging of this fast-moving new version. This is the first play performed at night on Bannerman Island.
