Julius Caesar Class Assembly - Extract

Extract 1

Narrator 1

Travel with us back to Ancient Rome
More than two thousand years ago
Back to the time of Julius Caesar
You know him - he's that Roman geezer.

Narrator 2

The greatest Roman of them all
And standing only five feet tall,
He conquered Gaul and Britannia,
Greece, North Africa and Hispania

Narrator 3

He was a clever man and most ambitious
And some did say he was quite vicious
Judge for yourselves, you will see him soon
Welcome to Rome, it's half past noon.
(Scene opens with a stall holders chanting in a Roman market
place)

Stall Holder 1

Olives! Best olives! The finest olives in Rome. Get your olives here!

Stall Holder 2

Grapes! Grapes! Red, white and rose. Get your grapes here.

Stall Holder 3

Dormice! Dormice! Delicious dormice fried, boiled or raw. Perfect for any feast.



Extract 2

Caesar

You understand me well Brutus. That is why you are my friend. Cassius, gather my army. I think I will go and conquer Egypt. We'll go on Sunday after the games. (Exit Caesar).

(Brutus pays the slave master and the crowd moves off)

Brutus

Cassius, Caesar worries me. He's getting too big for his boots.

Cassius

I feel the same. The next thing we'll know is that he wants to be king!

Brutus

The last king, Tarquirius, was a disaster! We can't let it happen again.

Cassius

What are you saying Brutus?

Brutus

Nothing yet. Let's see what happens



Extract 3

Narrator 1

To see two gladiators fighting
To see Julius Caesar was most exciting.
So on Saturn's Day at the colosseum
That's the place where you next will see him.

Caesar

Let the battle commence!

Gladiators

Ave, Caesar!
Morituri te Salutamus!
Hail Caesar. Those who are about to die, salute you!

Caesar

Well get on with it then!

 

 

 

 



Extract 4

 

(Enter slave with rolled up carpet)

Egyptian

We have brought Caesar a gift.

Caesar

Thank you, but I have plenty of carpets in my palace in Rome.

Egyptian

But this isn't just a carpet! It is a wrapping for a special gift.

Caesar

Then kindly unwrap it.

(Carpet is unrolled and Cleopatra emerges)

My word! What a beautiful girl!

Cleopatra

My name is Cleopatra, the rightful Queen of Egypt. You have conquered my country and you have conquered my heart.

Caesar

And you have conquered mine and I have only known you five seconds.

Cleopatra

Yes I have that effect on men.

Caesar

And when I am the king of Rome I will bring you to Rome and you shall be my queen.

Cleopatra

A little bird told me that you already have a wife, Pompeia.

Caesar

A little poison will cure me of her. Come and show me the Pyramids.

(Caesar and Cleopatra go off)



Extract 5

Pompeia

Julius, don't go. I have had a terrible dream. I dreamed that you're going to die.

Caesar

Pompeia, don't fuss so! Your silly dreams won't stop me from going. I want to be the new King of Rome!

(Starts making his way)

Soothsayer

Caesar! Caesar! Beware the Ides
Beware the Ides of March.

Caesar

Who is this silly old fool?
Throw him to the lions!!

(Guards drag soothsayer away)

Soothsayer

Caesar! Beware the Ides!
Beware the Ides of March.
