Shakespeare in the Park

The Tempest 

Join us at 6 p.m. Saturday, July 30, for a free performance of “The Tempest” in Island Park. Elgin-based Goodly Creatures Theatre will perform a lively and engaging performance suitable for audiences of all ages. 

Seating begins at 4 p.m. for this outdoor performance. The audience is encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnics. 

The play features actors from across the Chicago area. Goodly Creatures is a traveling theater company founded by Katrina Syrris, an alumna of the Midsummer Theater Troupe that previously performed at Geneva’s Shakespeare in the Park. Syrris, who is also an artistic director, specializes in breathing new life into classic works of literature and making them accessible to all.
