Mission Statement

From its inception, the primary mission of the Festival has been to provide audiences in Central Illinois, the State and the surrounding Midwestern region with a professional caliber, summer Shakespearean theatre.
A secondary mission of the Festival is to provide an opportunity unique outside the Chicago area for young actors to perform Shakespeare and obtain classical training under the tutelage and direction of experienced professionals.

Description

The Illinois Shakespeare Festival represents a long-established tradition of professional theatre devoted to performing the plays of Shakespeare. The Festival originated in 1978 as a joint enterprise of the Illinois State University Department of Theatre and the College of Fine Arts, in cooperation with the Illinois State University Foundation (a not-for-profit enterprise).
