EJP’s Theatre Initiative provides EJP students opportunity to stage performances and learn theatre craft. The first performance, titled Our Play, was in January 2012. Directed by UIUC faculty member Carol Symes, Our Play was a powerful collection of scenes from Shakespeare plays that touched upon themes of vengeance, forgiveness, and community. The second production, in April 2013, was of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. The members of the Theatre Initiative are currently working on Julius Caesar, which they hope to perform in spring 2014.

Please contact Carol Symes at symes@illinois.edu for more information.
