The community is invited to an April 27 performance of “Short Shakespeare! Romeo and Juliet,” given by the Chicago Shakespeare Theater at Prairie State College (PSC), 202 S. Halsted St. in Chicago Heights.
The 75-minute abridged presentation will begin at 11 a.m. in the Barnes & Noble College Auditorium on campus. Theater director Marti Lyons and the cast will hold a question and answer session after the performance.
