Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks 2016 tour of “Twelfth Night", with ASL, & Audio-described performances

The Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks project , and the Chicago Park District has announced the 2016 Schedule with 14 performances, with once again including six American Sign Language (ASL) interpreted performances, and for the first time one Audio-described and ASL Duo-interpreted Performance ( I would believe if their is a enough turn out, in future years more performances would be included).

The Chicago Park District’s 'Night Out in the Parks' and the 2016 Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks performances of “Twelfth Night” will premiere at Navy Pier on Thursday, July 14 and Friday, July 15 at 6:30 p.m.
