Muse Of Fire Theatre Company

1712 Wesley Ave.
Evanston, IL 60201

Muse of Fire Theatre Company strives to intrigue and educate the widest possible audience through productions of compelling plays, with Shakespeare as our cornerstone.  Our vision is to become an integral part of the arts community and draw as many people as possible into the vibrant world of great theatre through rousing productions and innovative educational programming. We are now in our seventh season in Evanston.  Our past Shakespeare-in-the-park productions, co-sponsored by the City itself, include Henry V, Macbeth, As You Like It, Julius Caesar, The Taming of the Shrew, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, and Romeo and Juliet.  This summer we are presenting a family-friendly one-hour version of Cymbeline, which will also tour to nearby North Shore communities; and a full production of Hamlet, which will include both indoor and outdoor performances (and an intermission!).  Our educational programming includes theatre workshops for 8-12 year olds at the Fleetwood-Jourdain summer camp, and both hands-on and discussion-oriented Shakespeare classes for adults offered throughout the year.
