What's Past is Prologue
The Mission of Shakespeare Corrected is to bring undergraduate students together with marginalized populations to create an artistic experience that results in an atmosphere of respectful inclusion and supported expression.
Rehearsals and public performances are held at various venues throughout the year.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Shakespeare Corrected is a volunteer-based arts program offered at Decatur Correctional Center in Decatur, IL. It is now in its ninth year and continues to improve in quality each year. The current model of the nine-month program is to build skills through monologues and discussion in the fall and then to produce a full-scale Shakespeare play in the spring. Although cut down from the original versions, the productions are about ninety minutes long and then performed for friends, family, and other inmates.
