The Struts and Frets Players are an independent theatre company operating in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. We all met through Manitoba Theatre for Young People, working on several student Shakespeare productions together. After discovering our mutual love of both theatre and classical mythology, we formed the Struts and Frets Players for the 2008 Winnipeg Fringe Festival, and we’ve been working together on various projects ever since.
Our mission is to breathe new life into old stories. Using techniques such as masks, puppetry, story theatre, and our own bizarre blend of comedy and drama (including puns a-plenty,) we aim to bring a wider audience to classic myths and legends that deserve to be better known than they are. Brought together by a love of mythology, good theatre, and the Bard, we stayed together because few others could cope with all of us at once for very long.
