“Sofa Shakespeare” Act 1 Ready to View

Post Date:05/22/2020

The Mundelein Arts Commission (MAC) invites residents to have some fun with their new initiative “Sofa Shakespeare.” Since a live production currently is not feasible, the MAC  has invited residents to take part in the group’s production of a Shakespeare play by submitting a 1-minute excerpt from a play that will be edited and adapted into a single, most likely strange/hilarious performance to be released online.

You can begin watching Act I of the Mundelein Arts Commission's "Sofa Shakespeare" production of the Taming of the Shrew on Youtube now! We still need more participants to complete the play. Open to anyone who lives or works in Lake County, any age, any ability level.  Sign up at
