This chapter looks at Caesar in regional theatre, presenting a detailed study of two Caesar productions by a single company, Georgia Shakespeare. Georgia Shakespeare is one of approximately 233 active Shakespeare-driven theatre companies in the United States. Georgia Shakespeare's early years featured several playful, mainstream adaptations of Shakespeare including a musical Shrew and a Mafia-themed Hamlet. Though Georgia Shakespeare had weathered the fiscal crisis of 2009 better than most regional companies due to some voluntary cost-cutting the previous year, money was tight. Moreover, as a LORT theatre, they are obligated to maintain a ratio of 12 (higher paying) Equity to every 2 non-Equity contracts. Georgia Shakespeare's expanded Casca continued the character's life as follows. When civil war broke out, Casca went to war as an officer defending the new Brutus-led regime against Mark Antony and Octavius.
