Photo Flash: Chicago Shakespeare Presents SHORT SHAKESPEARE

Chicago Shakespeare Theater presents Short Shakespeare! Macbeth, a 75-minute abridged production of William Shakespeare's tale of political intrigue and personal ambition, adapted and directed by Marti Lyons and featuring a dynamic ensemble cast.

Chicago Shakespeare's Short Shakespeare! series is a cornerstone of the Theater's nationally recognized Team Shakespeare education programs, which have impacted two million students to date. Chicago Shakespeare brings Shakespeare's work to life in the school curriculum-through live performance, professional learning for educators, comprehensive teaching resources, and opportunities for students to perform Shakespeare.

These initiatives-in concert with the free citywide Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks tour and summer family musical series-exemplify the Theater's steadfast commitment to young audiences, and ensure that one in four audience members is age 18 or under.
