Shakespeare’s legendary love story staged

Romeo and Juliet slated for annual alumni night

The annual Alumni Night at the Illinois Shakespeare Festival has been scheduled for Friday, July 29. The theatre will be reserved for alumni and their guests, who will enjoy a performance of Romeo and Juliet. They sacrifice everything for their love—family, friends, and even their lives.

If you have never experienced the Illinois Shakespeare Festival, this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy theatre under the stars! Not only will you see one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays, you will also get the “inside scoop” from festival personnel, including a backstage tour, and a photo opportunity with some of the actors.

The schedule for the evening is as follows:

5:30 p.m. – Theatre tours and social hour with Madrigals performance
6:30 p.m. – Buffet dinner
7 p.m. – Remarks by President Al Bowman
8 p.m. – Romeo and Juliet

The Alumni Relations office has negotiated discounted prices for alumni for this special evening. Tickets for the show range from $25 to $35, depending on seat preference. If you are a member of the Friends of the Arts and would like to sit in the section reserved for the Friends of the Arts, please select the Friends of the Arts member registration.

Tickets for the buffet dinner may be purchased separately for $16 each. To reserve tickets or request additional Alumni Night information, please call Alumni Relations at (309) 438-2586, or register online today!
