Chicago Shakespeare Theater offers a multitude of educational programs for its adult patrons under the banner Open Door at CST. All programs are provided free of charge, with most opportunities conveniently scheduled an hour or two before first curtain. Patrons are invited to attend free lectures presented by renowned scholars, while some visitors prefer more casual encounters such as our pre-show cast calls and the chance to interact directly with Chicago Shakespeare artists. Whatever the interest, arrive early to the Theater and sample the great variety of engaging fare available at Chicago Shakespeare.
