April 23, 2016 marked the 500th anniversary of the passing of the greatest playwright in the English language, perhaps the greatest in any language. And in tribute to this anniversary, the EOU Theatre Program is proud to present a full season of productions written by, dedicated to, or influenced from the works of the illustrious William Shakespeare. We hope you will join us in this tribute by attending ALL of our 2016 – 2017 productions.
