The Muse of Fire Theatre Company held their Fundraiser, “Feed the Fire” party on Oct. 13 at the Ecology Center, 2400 McCormick Boulevard. This was the company’s fourth successful summer season of bringing free Shakespeare-in-the-park to outdoor audiences in Ingraham Park behind the Morton Civic Center.
During “Feed the Fire” actors from all four of their seasons performed while guests ate food provided by local businesses and pondered over their Silent Auction bidding.
The evening appeared lighthearted and fun with many guests filling the multi-purpose room.
The Muse of Fire continues this fall with “Shake the ShakesFEAR of Shakespeare Work-shop” in conjunction with the City of Evanston’s Fleetwood-Jourdain Theater at the Noyes Cultural Arts center.
Adults, age 18 and up, are spending six weeks with Jemma Alix Levy, founder and artistic director of Muse of Fire Theatre Company. The group focuses on poetry, rhetoric and action to more fully understand Shakespeare’s speeches.
