Nora Manca '06

Nora Manca is president and artistic director of Storefront Shakespeare, a mobile theater company that incorporates nontraditional staging of Shakespeare’s classic plays with a modern, urban touch. Its first shows were produced in a vacant storefront in Geneva, IL, and a yoga studio in Naperville. The cast of 25 actors performed “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” using Promenade, a nontraditional form of theatre in which the entire space becomes the stage and the cast engages the audience in an interactive theatre experience.
