Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks: A Midsummer Night’s Dream @ Glen Oak Park
Aug 18 @ 7:00 pm
Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks: A Midsummer Night's Dream @ Glen Oak Park | Peoria | Illinois | United States

Chicago Shakespeare Theater announces free Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks tour performances in Peoria, Illinois to celebrate the 2018 Illinois Bicentennial. This year’s tour marks the first time the program has travelled outside of Chicago in its seven-year history. This summer, the Tony Award-winning Theater’s founder and artistic director Barbara Gaines stages her new music-filled adaptation of Shakespeare’s timeless classic A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

A specially equipped truck will travel downstate and unfold into a stage—and a company of professional actors will share Shakespeare’s magical comedy with neighbors of all ages.  Duplicating its successful community engagement efforts piloted in Chicago over the first seven seasons of the program (as part of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Night Out in the Parks Initiative), the Theater will work in partnership with the Peoria Park District—the oldest and largest park district in Illinois—as well as residents and community organizations to cultivate new audiences from neighborhoods across the down state region.

The first-of-its-kind tour is made possible by a civic, cultural, and corporate partnership between Chicago Shakespeare Theater, the City of Peoria, Peoria Park District, Boeing, and BMO Harris Bank—as well as a consortium of generous benefactors led by Peoria-based RLI Corp and Senior Vice President/Chief Financial Officer Tom Brown, a member of the Chicago Shakespeare Board of Directors.

The Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks A Midsummer Night’s Dream cast includes Jasmine Bracey (Titania/Hippolyta), Adam Wesley Brown (Bottom), Richard Costes (Snout), Danielle Davis (Starveling), Lane Anthony Flores (Flute/Fairy), Kevin Gudahl (Oberon/Theseus), Jarrett King(Egeus/Quince), Tyrone Phillips (Demetrius), Cage Sebastian Pierre (Puck), Laura Rook (Helena), Faith Servant (Hermia), Christopher Sheard (Lysander), and Hannah Starr (Snug/Fairy). Joining Gaines on the creative team is Scenic Designer Kevin Depinet, Costume Designer Mieka van der Ploeg, Sound Designer Mikhail Fiksel, and Wig and Make-up Designer Richard Jarvie.
