Overview

(Please note: Performances do not take place on Prince's Island Park this year. All performances are 'on the Go' in multiple locations.)


Theatre Calgary, in partnership with The Shakespeare Company and Hit & Myth Productions, are pleased to bring Shakespeare by the Bow back this year, but with a twist, as we present Shakespeare on the Go!

For 2021, our traditional Shakespeare by the Bow is being re-imagined and going on the road in a fun and safe way. This year, we will be taking our emerging artists to a variety of Calgary and area locations for the public to enjoy during the month of August.

Shakespeare on the Go will feature three casts of three actors, who will perform a collection of scenes from The Comedy of Errors (not the full production) that will be family-friendly, engaging, and easily accessible. Each 45-50 minute show will focus on a specific theme, and these performances will play separately at different locations throughout the summer.

We are pleased to announce that our outdoor performance partnerships will include Heritage Park, multiple Calgary Public Library locations, Brookfield Residential properties, Springboard Performance's containR, the Lougheed House, and we will also present the shows once a week in August at numerous public parks in Calgary (locations TBA).

Since 2012, our Shakespeare by the Bow program gives young emerging Alberta artists help making the transition from their training into the professional theatre by working with leading Canadian artistic, creative and production teams to bring Shakespeare to life. In keeping with our tradition of Shakespeare by the Bow, there will be no admission fees/tickets to attend one of our Shakespeare on the Go performances. To help support our emerging artist program, donations are gratefully accepted by Text-to-Donate.
