Jamie Horton, director of the production of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar at the Hopkins Center in Hanover, spoke with 30 HHS students who had been to see the play the night before. Students and teachers from English and Latin classes asked the director about Shakespeare's text, Shakespeare's political philosophy, scenery design, casting women in men's roles, and the techniques of using blood onstage.
Horton is an Associate Professor of Theater at Dartmouth College. For 23 years he was a principal actor and director with the Denver Center Theatre Company. He is a graduate of Hanover High School where his son is now a senior.
