FREE performances tour to a neighborhood park near you!
Join us for one of our city’s favorite summer traditions! Now in its sixth year, the FREE FOR ALL Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks tour heads out for another summer. This free 75-minute abridged production of Romeo and Juliet is coming to neighborhood parks across the north, west and south sides of the city, July 26–August 27, 2017. At each tour location, a specially equipped truck rolls into the park, a stage unfolds, and a company of professional actors shares Shakespeare’s story of star-crossed lovers with families and neighbors of all ages. Since the inception of the Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks program six years ago, more than 100,000 Chicagoans have taken advantage of free performances in their communities. Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks Romeo and Juliet kicks off performances at Navy Pier’s Polk Bros Park in Streeterville on July 26, 27 and 28 at 7:00 p.m.
