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


Shakespeare on the Go features three different casts of Alberta emerging artists, 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. These performances will play separately at different locations throughout the summer.

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 perform at numerous public parks in Calgary and area (locations TBA).
