Freewill Shakespeare Festival produces the works of William Shakespeare outdoors with professional Canadian actors, directors, designers and technicians. We are committed to hiring local artists to illuminate in a bold, modern way the humanity of Shakespeare, and explore the relevance of those themes for contemporary audiences.
This season Freewill is embarking on a new adventure! Since we are unable to perform at the Heritage Amphitheatre in Hawrelak Park due to renovations, we are going to be travelling to selected parks throughout Edmonton. The cast will be performing in both plays in a reparatory company and will be required to help with setting up and taking down the set.
