OCEANSIDE -

An Oceanside resident is one of two people accused of storming the stage of Julius Caesar during Shakespeare in the Park Sunday evening.

Brooklyn's Jovanni Valle is said to have jumped on stage first during the play.

About 20 minutes later, 28-year-old Salvatore Cipolla, of Oceanside, climbed on stage in protest.

There has been controversy after the Public Theater turned the character of Julius Caesar into a President Donald Trump look-alike.

In 2013, the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis cast a Barack Obama look-alike in the lead role of Caesar.
