The Free Will Players was founded in 1989 to satisfy the community need and theatre artist desire for a professional outdoor Shakespeare Theatre experience in Edmonton. Free Will Players has produced 26 seasons of Shakespeare in the Park, consisting of 42 full-length productions, all remarkably set in the Heritage Amphitheatre in Edmonton’s Hawrelak Park.

Since 1989 over 265,000 people have attended FSF, including 13,832 in 2013.
