Nearly 6,000 school children fill Dixon Hall over seven days. To augment their lesson plans, teachers received specific study guides that were prepared to correspond to the Louisiana State Educational Curriculum Standards.

Members of the cast ponder students’ questions after dramatizing scenes from Julius Caesar. The production at Tulane was set in 1930s America to become a drama of Depression-era political intrigue.
