A theatrical experience reminiscent of the intimate setting of Shakespeare’s original Globe Theatre. Many a pleasant midsummer’s night has been spent with King Lear and playful Puck. Every summer from late-June through mid-July the Freewill Players stages two Shakespeare masterpieces.
The storied festival that began as a pass-the-hat affair in 1989 has since blossomed into a much anticipated summer event. Featuring more than 50 artists producing professional, contemporary renditions of the Bard’s classics; you’ll marvel at the colourful costumes, laugh at the ridiculous conundrums and flinch at the furious fight scenes as you fend off the squirrels trying to steal your popcorn.
