Support Freewill

As many of you know, our home at the Heritage Amphitheatre in Hawrelak Park was damaged this year. That’s meant some big changes to the festival that will not only impact us this year but for seasons to come.

That’s why we’re asking our amazing supporters to sign up for the Goodwill for Freewill campaign. We need your goodwill to continue providing Edmonton with one of the best outdoor Shakespeare experiences in the country.  Your support allows us to maintain accessible ticket prices while still producing vibrant and exciting theatre. Through Goodwill for Freewill you can sign up for a monthly donation that costs as little as a latte and you’ll receive a tax receipt for your generosity.  Last year 14,000 people attended the Festival, even a $5/month donation will help us immensely. One thing we’ve learned this season is that we need to prepare for the unexpected and to do that we need resources for these worse-case scenarios.

Did you know :

  • one quarter (1/4) of our performances are Pay-What-You-Will?
  • another quarter (1/4) of our performances are free for any student with a valid ID?
  • our ticket prices are amongst the lowest of any professional theatre in town?
  • the average ticket price per person per season is only $13?

The Freewill Shakespeare Festival extends the warmest of gratitudes to everyone who shares our vision. If you would like to make a tax-deductable donation, please click the link here  or on the CanadaHelps link at the top of this page to become a friend of the Free Will Players.
