NIU Annuitants headed to Shakespeare Theatre

Published: Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

The Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association will travel to Chicago Shakespeare Theatre on Navy Pier to see the matinee of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” on Dec. 12. Seats are available.

The Chicago Shakespeare Theater celebrates the holidays with Sir John Falstaff, one of Shakespeare’s favorite clowns, rollicking through his misadventures in the play that is considered one of the world’s first situation comedies. Merriment ensues as the shenanigans of the lovable rogue find him hard up for money and wooing the wives of Windsor’s gentlemen with hilarious consequences.

The group will depart from Northern Illinois University at 10 a.m. and enjoy free time at Navy Pier for lunch (on your own) and/or visit the Stained Glass Museum at Navy Pier. Following the 1 p.m. show, the bus will return to DeKalb. Cost is $124.
