Chicago Shakespeare Trip
This was the 14th year for this trip! The show was "Twelfth Night" which is a comedy. The theater calls it "Short Shakespeare" because they cut it down to a 75 minute production with a 15 chat with the actors right after. They do an AMAZING job of keeping the main story and making it entertaining for a student audience. This is a professional theater company, internationally acclaimed! We are so fortunate that we have something on this level close enough to take part in it.
