The Festival

Edmonton’s WINTER SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL is a not-for-profit start up dedicated to bringing accessible, high-quality, large-scale productions of Shakespearean classics the city during the winter months.

Staged in unique site-specific locations, these performances offer Edmonton audiences a new way to experience Shakespeare in the theatre, in conditions consonant with those of the plays’ original productions.

The festival also offers a number of satellite events, offering students and the wider community an opportunity to increase their involvement, education, and contact with classical theatre throughout the year.
