The Dean's Men is a student organization at the University of Chicago dedicated to the works of William Shakespeare. Through University Theater productions and other activities, we strive to bring the Bard's writing to the school and create a community of theater makers in the process. We are dedicated to this community, which prospers through social events as well as the rehearsal process, and believe in the importance of its warm, joyous existence. As we continue to cultivate and strengthen our art, so we continue to cultivate and strengthen our community.
In addition to our quarterly University Theater show, we teach and direct a yearly Shakespeare show with local middle school students at St. Thomas Academy; put on biweekly play readings; host gatherings with David Bevington, the world-renowned Shakespeare scholar; and many other artistic and social endeavors.
Once a Dean's Man, always a Dean's Man.
