For more than a quarter century, Chicago Shakespeare’s work on stage and in the community has been met with great critical acclaim, reflecting the audacious spirit and bold innovation of our global city. The spirit with which Shakespeare moves the world and our own artistic ambition have amplified our work on Navy Pier and expanded our reach into the schools and neighborhoods of Chicago and to festivals across the world. Central to our mission is a commitment to introducing all Chicagoans to the transformative power of live theater and the lessons inherent in Shakespeare’s canon.
The support of our generous family of donors makes possible these innovative programs that position CST as an internationally recognized theater, a cultural ambassador for Chicago, a partner in literacy for Chicago Public Schools and the producer of the largest scale arts-civic partnership in Chicago today. We are honored to celebrate their partnership!
