"Double Double" by Nancy Steele Brokaw
Directed by Enrico Spada

Want to meet William Shakespeare AND Abraham Lincoln? How about three dastardly witches, a king or two, and a funny talking wall? You can! They are together in Double, Double, a fun, fast-paced show for the young and young-at-heart. Look over there! That's Abraham Lincoln sitting on a bench outside the McLean County Courthouse. He's wrestling with a decision that will change his life and the life of his country. Who can help him? Why, William Shakespeare, of course! This beloved writer has been Lincoln's go-to guy since childhood. Both Lincoln and Shakespeare rose from humble beginnings to outshine expectations and they will teach you how to do that, too. Join us as we meet two of history's biggest superstars, hear real Shakespeare words, have some laughs, be inspired, and even learn a line or two.

Free & Open to the Public
