Join us for our eighth annual production of CPS Shakespeare! as 21 students and 9 teachers from 11 CPS high schools from across the city perform CPS Shakespeare! Othello on November 1-2. Through a five-week, five-day per week intensive rehearsal process under the guidance of a full team of professional artists, this intergenerational ensemble prepares a fully designed production, culminating in two performances on Chicago Shakespeare’s mainstage. CPS Shakespeare! develops literacy skills as it builds confidence, empowering students to approach life’s challenges with bravery and self-assurance.
