Improvised Shakespeare Co. + The Bard's Birthday Bash!

Hear ye, hear ye! Walton Arts Center is thrilled to present its next 10x10 show, The Improvised Shakespeare Company on Wednesday, April 23 at 7:30pm.

The Improvised Shakespeare Company was founded in 2005 and has been performing its critically-acclaimed show at the iO Theater in Chicago for over seven years. Based solely on audience suggestion, The Improvised Shakespeare Company creates a fully improvised masterpiece in Shakespearean prose before viewers’ eyes. All of the dialogue in the show is spoken for the first time, nothing has been planned or rehearsed and the characters are virtually created while audience members watch—each performance is unique and completely new. The night could reveal everything from tragedy to comedy, shown through the themes and language of William Shakespeare.

So, get your tickets to the performance, attend a pre-show Creative Conversation with the cast, and stay afterward for our post-show birthday bash for the Bard! We'll be sure to celebrate with birthday cake, a Shakespeare-inspired drink and plenty of Elizabethan insults and phrases.
