ISSN 1937-8416 (46¢ + tax included) Spencer Valley School To Present Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” Banner Creek Clean Up Julius Caesar (Brigit Lewis) says, “Et tu Brute’” and expires in the Second Act, but there is still plenty of action to come. Marc Antony (played by Calea Cruz) asks friends, Romans, and countrymen to lend their ears and whips up the crowd against the assassins. To see how it all turns out you’ll have to attend a performance of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, at Spencer Valley School in Santa Ysabel, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, the 25, 26, or 27 of March. Julius Caesar, like all of Shakespeare’s plays, is a treasure trove of rich language. This play is also a hands-on civics lesson. Students learn about democracy, manipulative persuasion, and the need for clear-headed deliberation, as the senators plot to kill Caesar and then live to see public opinion turned against them. This year the student actors are creating their own unusual costumes that express the traits of their characters. 2014 marks the 18th annual Shakespeare production at Spencer Valley. As always, students from all grades, this year ESK through 7th grade act in Julian Eagles Athletics Spring Sports Julius Caesar in rehearsal at Spencer Valley School the production, with larger roles played by the older students. Past years have seen A Comedy of Errors, Macbeth, As You Like It and The Tempest. Author Don Winslow adapted the script for Julius Caesar, as he has done with all Shakespeare scripts for the school performances. Each night’s performance will be at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday admissions are by donation. Wednesday’s performance is a dinner theater show, with advance tickets only, at $35.00 each. Call 760-765-0336 for reservations. Dinner is at 5:00 p.m. Revenue from performances of Julius Caesar will help defray costs of the show as well as raise money for the Spencer Valley Educational Association, a nonprofit foundation that funds afterschool tutoring, field trips such as to Mission San Juan Capistrano and the San Diego Opera, fine arts supplies, and many other projects. Music On The Mountain - Special Presentation Laura Klugherz And The East-West Quartet On Saturday, March 8th 4 members of the United Methodist Church of Julian came to the aid of their community. With household items run amuck in the Banner Creek near the Wynola turn off, Lary Rogers, Hans Hollenbeck, Harvey Arntson, and Jeff Holt filled the back of a truck with a sofa, television set, wire, drain pipe, curtain rods, wicker basket, and rotten wood (It was all rotten!). Using the tried and true arrangement of "hand over hand" these seniors hoisted the water sogged furniture to the waiting truck. The Methodist men continued their crusade by taking the household debris to the Ramona dump, where Lary Rogers used his own money to pay the "dump fees." Hats off to these local volunteers.
