The Freewill Shakespeare Festival is extremely grateful for every donation we receive. This amazing support from the community allows us to offer 9 Pay-What-You-Will Shows and 8 shows that are free to any student with a valid ID. That makes ½ of our shows each season accessible to anyone in Edmonton! It also enables us to have the lowest ticket prices in the city!

Our fundraisers are another way that you can support The Freewill Shakespeare Festival. Read on to find out more about how you can help!
