Illinois Shakespeare Festival - Theatre for Young Audience

Illinois Shakespeare Festival - Theatre for Young Audience
Saturday, Jul 31, 2021 at 10:00am to Monday, Aug 30, 2021 at 12:19pm
Ewing Cultural Center

In addition to mainstage productions, ISF produces a yearly Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) show that is perfect for the whole family! Bring your children, grandchildren, or youth group-everyone is welcome and the price is FREE! Our TYA performances are fun and usually last under an hour.

The 2021 Theatre for Young Audiences production will be A Summer's Winter Tale by Nancy Steele Brokaw.

Have you ever been so mad that you could not think straight?  That is what happens to Leo, King of Ewingland, in A Summer’s Winter Tale.  His anger lights the fuse of this fast-paced tale of love and betrayal, ocean voyages and bear chases, a prince, a princess, and a super mysterious statue. Come learn about Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale in the middle of summer!  Hear real Shakespeare words–but not too many. This show also teaches young audiences about second chances and what it means to say, “I messed up. I’m sorry.”

TYA performances are free of charge and do not require tickets or registration. If you plan on bringing a group of 20 or more, please email us so our front-of-house staff can best anticipate your arrival. A reminder that separate parties will be socially distanced from both one another and the performers.
