The Illinois Shakespeare Festival  will host a 40th season celebration dinner on from 6-9 p.m. August 18, 2017, at the DoubleTree Hotel Ballroom.

To be unveiled will be “40 Seasons/40 Actors,” a media display recognizing some of the actors who have “tread the boards” of the Festival’s stage.

Two Bloomington-Normal-based professional actors will be featured, Tom Quinn and David Kortemeier.

Actor Gary Cole, who made his professional debut in the first season, 1978, will address the audience via video that was recorded during his visit to campus earlier this year when he was inducted into the Illinois State University College of Fine Arts Hall of Fame and served as the 2017 spring commencement speaker.
