The Barefoot Players is Queen's University Department of Drama's theatre troupe for young audiences.

Made possible by the Queen's Summer Work Experience Program (SWEP), the Barefoot Players gain valuable workplace experience creating, touring, and performing theatre for young audiences between the months of May and August each year.

Past shows include adaptations of local folk tales and of Shakespearean works Macbeth and The Tempest. The company also runs a theatre day camp, bringing theatre education and fun to local children for two weeks every summer.

Preparations are well under way for the 2014 Season - The Barefoot Players are very excited to announce this season's show Dream a Little Dream, an adaptation of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed by Queen's University faculty member Kim Renders.
