2020 summer update

Hello friends,
 
With the appropriate restrictions on public gatherings now in place until the end of August, regrettably we are not able to perform in Prince’s Island Park this summer.
 
But this does not mean a cancellation!
 
Instead, what it provides for Theatre Calgary is an opportunity to re-imagine 'ShakesBow' for our current times.
 
Shakespeare by the Bow is built around giving opportunities to emerging Alberta talent. This program plays a vital role in their professional development, and is extremely important to us that it continues. Therefore in the coming weeks I plan on sharing some news with you about what exciting Shakespeare play will be presented, and how!
 
Until then friends, please stay safe, wash your hands, and practice your sonnets.

Stafford Arima
Artistic Director

About Shakespeare by the Bow

About Shakespeare by the Bow

Theatre Calgary’s Shakespeare by the Bow gives all Calgarians an opportunity to enjoy live theatre in this gorgeous natural setting throughout the summer. Since 2012, this innovative gives recent graduates from Alberta post-secondary theatre programs real life experience working with leading Canadian artistic, creative and production teams to bring a play to life.

The program also features a team of mentors and coaches providing instruction in classical text, voice, speech, and other theatre skills and techniques. Many of our Shakespeare by the Bow alumni have also moved on to perform in our main stage productions including Iceland, A Christmas Carol, Bad Jews, and more.

Shakespeare by the Bow is generously supported by the RBC Foundation.
