Theatre Calgary is announcing that, due to financial constraints, the Shakespeare by the Bow program will be on hiatus for the summer of 2024.

Shakespeare by the Bow is a program that we are very proud of and that we enjoy producing. However, it is also a very expensive venture to bring to life. To maintain the levels of production, artistry, and logistics, we need to re-examine how to make this program viable. This program has always been supported by the generosity of our audiences (pay-what-you-will donations), and a few wonderful corporate and individual donors. However, we need to take a step back in 2024 and look for ways to make Shakespeare by the Bow successful.

We are in discussions with a couple of key Calgary organizations about engaging the program in 2025. This is a program that can succeed with partners that have both the access to additional funding, and the interest of helping build and support the next generation of emerging artists in Calgary.
