LOOKING AHEAD TO OUR 2020/21 PERFORMANCES
As in our schools across the country, theaters, too, are responding to a world changed by the presence of COVID‑19. As we continue to work through various models for a performance calendar and programming for next year, we hope to hear from you, our teachers. Would you take a few minutes and help us think about how best to serve our community of teachers and students in the coming months by completing this short survey?
We can’t wait to see you and your students back with us next year in a variety of ways—at performances, teacher workshops, our high school SLAM. To all of you, here’s to a summer ahead of refueling and healing—and learning—as we all continue to navigate, in the best ways that we can, these uncharted spaces of education.
“Thank you! It was awesome to be able to experience it right here at our school.”
–Student, Bloom Trail High School, Chicago Heights, IL
The 2019/20 abridged Shakespeare production of The Comedy of Errors—first staged in a 6-week run at its home on Navy Pier—goes on the road for two weeks to serve Chicago Public Schools in March, 2020. Our thirteen-member cast, accompanied by a full crew of light and sound operators, a dresser, and stage managers, heads out to a different school auditorium each morning. This 90-minute abridged production includes a discussion with the cast following the performance.
Chicago Public Schools interested in participating in the 2019/20 school year tour, please contact CST's Education Department at 312.595.5678 for further information.
