STUDENT NIGHTS at the ILLINOIS SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL
On selected evenings, student tickets are buy one, get one free. Purchase your tickets the night of the performance, and don't forget to show your ID! Student tickets, regularly priced at $16 on these evenings, come out to $8 apiece - less than some movie theatres!
The dates are as follows:
Tuesday July 29, 7:30 PM
THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED)
Wednesday July 30, 7:30 PM
TAMING OF THE SHREW
Tuesday August 5, 7:30 PM
All marketing aside, students (particularly non-theatre majors) are one group that's SORELY underrepresented out at the Festival, and we'd love to see more young faces in the crowd. I certainly understand that the cost can be pretty daunting. $16's a pretty good deal in the theatre world, but it's still a pretty hefty chunk of change to drop for something you don't know you'll love. Hopefully $8 is a more reasonable investment! And even if you're just not interested in Shakespeare, come out for Complete Works. It's hilarious, and you don't need to be any sort of Shakespeare buff to get the jokes.
