Founded in 2011 by Andrew Ritchie and Neil Kuefler, Thou Art Here is Alberta’s alternative Shakespeare company bringing the Bard’s work and adaptations to the most unexpected places. The company strives to create site-sympathetic productions, which explore relevant and exciting stories that highlight notable venues.

Talbot and Joan was adapted by Morgan Yamada from Shakespeare's Henry VI series. This femme fatale story features Talbot, a skilled warrior known for their strength and never doubted for their abilities, and Joan, who is also an extremely skilled warrior but known for using her femininity to her advantage. A supernatural and evocative fight show pits the women against each other in an equal battle of strength and wits.

Family Fun Zone | 9210 - 118 Ave (Behind “The Hall”)

The Wandering Minstrel 

This character roams around, serenading passersby with improvised lyrics that directly relate to whatever they may be doing at the time. These songs always have rhyming lines and have the musical accompaniment of a live played merlin. Wherever the minstrel goes, he always leaves smiles and giggles in his wake.

The Festivus King

An attempt at making a more commanding, yet still fun presence, this roving character has two long red carpets that his holy feet are unable to leave. Using his royal prestige, The Festivus King (kindly) commands anyone near him to take a carpet from behind him and place it in front of him so that he may cross the festival grounds.

It is common for folks to decide to help, hinder or purely protest against the monarchy. Any and all forms of interaction are welcomed!
