Measure for Measure
By William Shakespeare
Thursday, July 31-Saturday, Aug. 2, 2014 7 p.m.
Outdoors at the Gateway
Admission is Free!
An intriguing, challenging, and very dark comedy, Measure for Measure delves into a society’s often hypocritical attitudes toward love, personal fidelity, religion, politics, and marriage. Come celebrate the 11th anniversary of Moraine Valley’s “Shakespeare Under the Stars.” Bring your picnic dinner and beach chairs to the Gateway and experience our production of one of Shakespeare's lesser-known but most intriguing plays.

Moraine Valley Community College invites you to our Fine and Performing Arts Center for our 21st season filled with music, dance, theater, and art for all ages. We’re pleased to bring you another outstanding lineup of concerts and special events in our 600-seat Dorothy Menker Theater, our intimate John and Angeline Oremus Theater, and our Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery. Join us!
