NIU group to attend Hamlet event July 29

No one knows the exact date of William Shakespeare's birth, but devotees have adopted April 23 as the day to celebrate — and this year, the man from Stratford turns 450.

Shakespeare's Globe Theater — a re-creation of the theater that hosted most of his plays — is marking the occasion with an ambitious world tour of Hamlet, the Bard's most iconic play, which the troupe plans to perform in every country in the world. Chicago is one of only two cities in the U.S to be a part of this global tour.

Members of the Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association and their guests will be at the start of a completely unprecedented theatrical adventure launching this two-year worldwide tour of a pared-down, small-scale Hamlet, which will visit all 205 nations on earth.

The group will leave DeKalb at 3 p.m. July 29 with free time at Navy Pier for dinner (on your own) and/or visit the Stained Glass Museum at Navy Pier before the show. Deadline for reservations and payment was Tuesday or until space is gone. 

To reserve a spot or for questions, email Steven Johnson at sjohnso11@niu.edu or call Carder Travel Ltd. at 815-756-1547.
