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 25 seasons of Shakespeare in the Park, consisting of 39 full-length productions, all remarkably set in the Heritage Amphitheatre in Edmonton’s Hawrelak Park*.

Since 1989 over 255,800 people have attended FSF, including 13,832 in 2013.

The Free Will Players Theatre Guild is a registered charitable organization.  Tax deductible donations can be made through the CanadaHelps link at the top of this page.

*Please note: Due to repairs at the Heritage Amphitheatre we’ll be located in the Myer Horowitz Theatre on the University of Alberta Campus in the Students Union Building this season.
