Chicago Shakespeare Theater brings together students from 26 high schools across the region to celebrate the power of Shakespeare’s language—and their own voices—in the sixth annual Chicago Shakespeare Slam.
A series of Saturday workshops and regional preliminary bouts throughout the fall culminate in a spirited, fun-filled Final Bout on Thursday, January 19 at 6:00PM on the stage of the Courtyard Theater at Chicago Shakespeare.
Emcees warm up the crowd and an onstage DJ drops beats as teams perform, cheered on by a full house of fellow participants, classmates, and friends.
SLAM teams advancing to the Final Bout on January 19 include Francis W. Parker School (Chicago), Kenwood Academy (Chicago), Lindblom Math and Science Academy (Chicago), Mundelein High School (Mundelein), Niles North High School (Skokie), O-School (Chicago), South Shore International College Prep (Chicago), Taft High School (Chicago), Universal School (Bridgeview), and Warren Township High School (Gurnee).
