Jobs (Edmonton): PM & TD – Freewill Shakespeare Festival

The Free Will Players Theatre Guild was formed in 1989 by a group of actors in a truly co-operative, pass-the-hat spirit with the mandate to produce the works of William Shakespeare in the form of the Freewill Shakespeare Festival. Our high-quality productions and affordable ticket prices, which range from pay-what-you-will performances to free admission for children ten and under, has attracted over 390,000 people to 42 main stage productions at the Freewill Shakespeare Festival. Traditionally our venue has been the Heritage Amphitheatre in Hawrelak Park, however due to a 3 year year park rehabilitation project shutting down the entire park, Freewill Shakespeare Festival is taking their festival on the road! Freewill is bringing Shakespeare to YOUR park in 2023!
