This is the most intimate of the Stratford Festival theaters. Only about ten rows of seating on three sides of the stage, with seriously raked seating. This gives everyone a great view of the stage action. The seats are comfortable. Of course, the productions are...More

This was our first time at the Studio Theatre. Small theatre with excellent view from every seat. Thoroughly enjoyed the show.

The Studio seats are very steeply raked and the climb can be difficult for those with disabilities. There isn't a poor seat in the house, but the seats are a bit narrow for the overweight. If you wear a hearing aid, take advantage of the...More

This is a small theatre which I like, close to the action. However, you are also very close to the person next to you, so If they are large, it may be a problem. I found the seat I was in, was very uncomfortable on...More

This is a small theatre at the back of the Avon on George St. Saw the Aeneid performed there. Seating, like a few other venues in Stratford is quite awkward and not the most comfortable. Still OK overall.

This theatre was amazing and brought in 3 local schools to do 20 minute plays for the parents for free. They also had a workshop with Stratford actors in the morning for the kids. It was a wonderful experience for the school kids.

This is one of the nest place to sele a play...small and intimate and usually shows unusual, more modern plays. You are very close to the actors and emotion.....Similar to the Courthouse theater at Shaw

Apart from the air conditioning being something akin to Frigidaire and the seating configuration being totally unfriendly to people with mobility issues, I adore the Studio Theatre! I can always rely on new, powerful, and thought provoking plays to be produced in this space! I...More
