Our 50th Season

Let’s start off with a review of our SHAKESPEARE ONLINE series!

The Feast of Saint Valentine has been celebrated as a day of romance and love for seven hundred years.  While we here at CenterStage in Lake Forest refuse to let plague and snow stand in our way, the saint never had to contend with the internet and its technical challenges.

From our heart to yours – won’t you be our Valentine?

2020 was a year like no other in living memory. A year of plague and wildfires, of riots and demonstrations. An election year with the most deeply divided electorate in a century. A year desperately in need of the solace, the comfort, and the joy of theatre; theatre whose buildings plague has shut down.

What to do?

Go back of course – to an expert in handling art in a time of plague: William Shakespeare.

When the London theatres closed, he sent his company to the countryside. When his landlords were a problem, he dismantled his theatre and moved it to the other side of the river. Will Shakespeare was the go-to guy of his age.
