The Bard reminds us that "All the World’s a Stage." We all have a part to play, and together, we are more than a place—we are a community. It takes all of us to define Chicago Shakespeare Theater.


–Barbara Gaines, Artistic Director

Through these challenging times, thousands of artists, teachers, students, community partners, and audience members are looking to Chicago Shakespeare Theater to keep them connected to the arts during this time of isolation. With your support, we continue to serve these members of our Chicago Shakespeare family in dramatic new ways. In the wake of the current pandemic, digital content serves students and teachers in the virtual classroom, and Shakes@Home connects audiences in living rooms across our city to the magic of theater.

By donating, you can fuel these new efforts and support the future of our organization!
