The Illinois Shakespeare Festival is a cultural staple of summer entertainment. We encourage you to explore this page when planning your trip to the Festival. Here you will find information on pre-show and post-show programming, local attractions, and ways to make your visit especially smooth.
Once you've picked your plays, add one or more of our audience engagement events to your schedule. We are more than just world-class theatre; we also offer free pre-show and post-show entertainment, tours, and more.
