Theater students have unparalleled access to world-class theater in the city of Chicago, with courses regularly taking trips to Steppenwolf, the Goodman, and Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, as well as to many other smaller but no less well-respected venues. On a campus stage or in Chicago, texts and techniques discussed in the classroom come to life for students and faculty.
Lake Forest College’s Department of Theater and Music presents “Little Women the Musical,” starting March 27 at the Hixon Hall Theater.
The fall theater production is a newly created play based on the Occupy Wall Street movement in Zuccotti Park, New York City in the fall of 2011. It will run November 14-16 and November 21-23 at 7:30 p.m. Through interviews and research, Lake Forest College students have worked with director and writer Richard Corley to create this original and exciting piece of theater.
