An evening of William Shakespeare’s works will be a real walk in the park for the city’s theatregoers this summer.

The Freewill Shakespeare Festival returns to the Heritage Amphitheatre in Hawrelak Park for its 21st season, from June 30 to July 26. Titus Andronicus and Comedy of Errors are the selections for this year.

Artistic director Marianne Copithorne said family or friends can choose between comedy or tragedy, the main themes in Shakespeare’s literary works, come rain or shine.

“It’s a tremendous experience and so exciting,” she said.

The Freewill Shakespeare Festival was started in 1989 by a group of drama students at the University of Alberta, said Copithorne.

Last year was the event’s most successful season, bringing 30,000 people, she said.

“It’s a great time at the park for friends and big groups of people.”
