The Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan 2021 Festival, presented by Nutrien, makes a triumphant return to the banks of this beautiful river running through Saskatoon.

Ambition and blood – so much blood. Macbeth’s wants and desires for power are fueled by the deadly determination of Lady Macbeth and the prophecies of three strange women. Dark, stylized and with blinding intensity, come experience the “Scottish Play” as you never have before – a magical, highly theatrical performance with five of Saskatchewan’s finest actors. This will be a memorable return to the stage for Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan – a return to live performance that takes the Bard’s deadliest tragedy to a wholly unexpected level. Featuring Joshua Beaudry and Kristi Friday in the lead roles.

A Little Background on William Shakespeare

Born in 1564, William Shakespeare was an English playwright, poet, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s greatest dramatist. His works include plays, sonnets and narrative poems, and they continue to be studied to this day. His plays continue to be performed around the world, and Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan 2021 in Saskatoon once again celebrates this famous bard at this annual festival.
