CPS Shakespeare Makes National News Tonight


I'm told that the NBC Nightly News will be featuring CPS Shakespeare n
their broadcast this evening. Never heard of it?  Me neither.  Apparently it's a program developed by Chicago Shakespeare over the past six years that features "an ensemble of
students and teachers from CPS high schools working together with a professional
artistic team to produce a play."  (Translation:  It's like Glee, except with Shakespeare.)  This year's show was Midsummer Night's Dream.  Apparently a big success.  Tonight at 5:30.  Don't miss it.  Good news for once.
