The Shakespeare Company is Calgary’s lean and mean classical theatre company.


Since 1995, we have brought the Bard alive for Calgarians through both Shakespeare and Shakespeare inspired plays. The Company’s mandate is to educate and enchant artists and audiences alike by performing premium productions. The company is committed to making Shakespeare accessible through innovative performances and inspired directing.
