Our 2021 Season shows were at Louise McKinny Park, Fringe and through local and private pop-ups around the city! Thank you to all those who cam out and supported!

Popup Shows

Dates  |  August 12 - August 29, 2021

Macbeth and Much Ado About Nothing will be available for private and public presentation in your backyard or community. The productions are 70 minutes, fast, fun, and accessible, keeping the spirit of Shakespeare's words and stories alive. These unique, lovingly told renditions will be enjoyed by everyone from the occasional to the well-read Shakespeare fan.

Currently, all pop-up shows are booked by either communities or private events. If you would like to find a community pop-up click the link below.

Please note that our community leagues have covered the fee for our Pop-ups! Freewill is so excited to partner with so many community leagues and we so appreciate your support. If you would like, we will have opportunities for you to donate to Shakespeare in the Park at each pop-up, so please find a Freewill staff member! We look forward to seeing you!
