The Illinois Shakespeare Festival performs at both Ewing Theatre and the Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of Illinois State University. Determine which Venue you are attending and visit Parking & Directions for details.
The Illinois Shakespeare Festival often offers free pre-show entertainment before our mainstage performances.
A staple of the Illinois Shakespeare Festival experience is picnicking on the beautiful Ewing grounds or the Illinois State University Quad before the performance. Patrons are encouraged to come early and spread out on the lawn - whether you bring your own dinner or find something here!
