Peace,
love, and

pentameter.

What’s all the ruckus about!? The What You Will Shakespeare Company, founded in the sunny hills of Cham-bana, has been rocking the University of Illinois campus since 2006, bringing the joy of Shakespeare and early modern theater to all.

We are a passionate, talented, and quirky group of actors, techies, directors, and all-in-all theatre-lovers working to present the works of William Shakespeare and his contemporaries in a humanistic and accessible light. Through student-produced Shakespeare we provide a bridge between the Early Modern period and today’s contemporary audiences by inviting you to explore the inner truths of humanity and of yourselves.

That, and we just like having fun.
