Another option for that vacation visit back to Normal: Join us on Saturday, July 9 for Alumni Night at the Illinois Shakespeare Festival when the Theatre at Ewing is reserved for alumni and their guests for the performance of Macbeth. Festival favorite and School of Theatre alum Philip Earl Johnson ‘ 86 stars in the title role and will join the group in the courtyard after the performance for a Meet and Greet. As a special treat for those who haven’ t been back to campus in some time, you can combine an evening of theatre with the opportunity to visit two newer buildings in “progressive dinner” style. As an appetizer, you can tour the Center for the Performing Arts, and then stroll next door to enjoy a light summer supper in the new College of Business Building. You’ ll end up at Ewing Manor for dessert before the 8 p.m. curtain time. For additional details and costs, you may download the event brochure, or visit our online events registration page.
