The Freewill Shakespeare Festival is produced by Free Will Players in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Free Will Players was formed in 1989 by a group of actors in a truly co-operative, pass-the-hat spirit with the mandate to produce the works of William Shakespeare. Since then the company has attracted over 168,000 people to 27 main-stage productions. The 2006 Summer Season saw over 17, 000 people clamour for Shakespeare, making it the most successful season to date. These large numbers are a reflection of the high quality of production and the very affordable ticket prices, that range from the 7 pay-what-you-will performances, to, free for children twelve and under, to, discounts for seniors and students, to, the economical season pass. The plays are performed at Hawrelak Park, in the 1100 seat, canopy covered, Heritage Amphitheatre.
