The Oak Park Festival Theatre today announced its summer show, William Shakespeare's THE WINTER'S TALE, opening July 16 and running through August 20 at Austin Gardens (167 Forest Ave., Oak Park), with previews July 14 and 15. Tickets are on sale now at www.oakparkfestival.com.
THE WINTER'S TALE marks Oak Park Festival Theatre's return to the stage after a devastating fire destroyed its offices and archives last winter. After two years of a global pandemic disproportionately impacting the financial and artistic health of the entire theatre community, the fire threatened to end Oak Park's premier equity theatre entirely. Fortunately, its supporters helped nurture resilience and, once again, outdoor theatre-lovers have a place to gather and enjoy classic works.
