Wisconsin Shakespeare Festival strives to celebrate all theatre in Eau Claire and the Chippewa Valley, so we invite YOU to join us for an “industry night” reception between our mainstage performances on Saturday, July 13. We welcome you to stop by the Gibson Street Entry at Pablo Center and mingle with each other and the cast/team of Wisconsin Shakespeare Festival, enjoying some free snacks and a cash bar.

This event is completely free of charge, and open to anyone with ties to local theatre.
