Shakespeare in the Park


Join the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission for a free evening of Shakespeare in the Park with a fun twist of David Bowie. The performance will take place at 6 p.m. Saturday, July 6 on the banks of the Fox River at Island Park. Bring chairs, blankets and picnics (or purchase food from vendors) and enjoy 90 minutes of laughs courtesy of Stone Soup Shakespeare’s interpretation of “Twelfth Night.”

Seating begins at 5 p.m. along with a pre-show craft activity for children offered by Geneva Public Library District. Parking is available in the lot at the southeast corner of Route 25 and State Street, and in the Metra commuter lot just south of the railroad bridge on Route 31. Follow the signs on the river path to Island Park.

'Twelfth Night'

With music as our "food of love," our rebellious band of misfit players will have you saying, "Let's Dance!" after this toe-tapping, hat-swapping, heart-throbbing mix of a fame-filled take on Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night." Join us as we imagine twins Viola and Sebastian meeting their idols in Illyria in this rhythm-fueled rendition of one of Shakespeare's favorite comedies.

Directed by Samie Jo Johnson. Featuring: Hasanah Brown, Angie Fisher, Joshua Pennington, Julia Stemper, Travis Wiggins and Theo Zucker.

This event is presented by the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission. For more information call 630-938-4530 or email
