Illinois Shakespeare Festival

The last weekend in July, the Illinois Shakespeare Festival casts and crews of "Romeo & Juliet," "The Winter's Tale," and "The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)" raised a total of $1680 for Season of Concern via audience appeals at curtain calls. Equity members Stephen Spencer and Gerson Dacanay pitched the audiences and other actors manned the exits with baskets. Thanks to Artistic Director Deb Alley for introducing Season of Concern in the festival program and to the generous audiences that attended this 34th Season of the Illinois Shakespeare Festival. Chicago-based Season of Concern gives actors the chance to give back to our brothers and sisters in their time of need.
