GreenStage ‘Backyard Bard’ abbreviated versions of two Shakespeare plays

July 12, 2024 @ 7:00 pm
four performances, three dates, two parks

Since 1989 GreenStage has brought free Shakespeare in the park to Seattle area audiences. Our mission is to foster an appreciation for live theater by eliminating geographical and financial barriers that impede access to the arts. Our shows tour to over 20 parks, large and small in and around Seattle. Attending is easy – just show up, grab a spot on the grass and enjoy. No tickets or reservations are required. Our shows are focused on the text, story, and character relationships in Shakespeare’s plays, with a goal of making the plays fun and easy to understand. Come join us in the parks this summer for our 36th Anniversary season!

Backyard Bard was born out of a desire to bring Shakespeare to smaller parks and new audiences in underserved neighborhoods. But we don’t just perform in the parks – Backyard Bard is also available for private parties. If you are interested in hosting a performance, contact us at

Julius Caesar

About the Play

In ancient Rome, Julius Caesar, a charismatic and ambitious general, rises to power. However, his growing influence sparks jealousy among his peers, leading to a conspiracy against him. Betrayal, loyalty, and the quest for power collide in a gripping tale of political intrigue, culminating in Caesar’s dramatic assassination and the chaotic aftermath that ensues.
