Festival Type: Arts & Culture
Community: Edmonton
Province: Alberta

The Freewill Shakespeare Festival brings Edmonton a new kind of summer “Shakespeareience” as we move outdoors to present both Romeo and Juliet and Love’s Labour’s Lost

“Producing Shakespeare indoors has been happening for centuries, but it will be a new and exciting challenge for us,” Artistic Director Marianne Copithorne says. “We’ll take every opportunity to simulate the outdoor experience – and that’s what’s going to make this season so unique. Our audience can depend on having just as much fun as they have in the past. Shakespeare’s plays can be enjoyed anywhere as long as they are performed with intelligence and wit – and that’s exactly what we’ll continue to do.”
