GLT's Datebook

actors in forest
Peter Guither / Illinois Shakespeare Festival

The Illinois Shakespeare Festival sets the stage this summer for a one-of-a-kind escape into the forest of Arden with the romantic comedy, “As You Like It.” Young lovers flee a corrupt court, plunging headlong into the forest, where they find love, friendship, and new songs to sing.
