A must see for the 2017 Stratford season. A magical show beautifully staged , acted,sung and danced. Donna Feore has produced a show which literally " sings" from beginning to end. One literally did not want it to end.

So far some of our favourites are The Physicists by Dürrenmatt, and the The Hypochondriac by Molière. This summer we are going to watch Tartuffe, also... More

Was at one of the early preview shows of Guys and Dolls April 22. Wow! What an amazing show! Such great talent and entertainers. Do No Miss This Show! The rave reviews will start piling in very soon. Simply a joy to experience.

Once again Stratford has mounted a fantastic musical in 'Guys & Dolls'. Terrific cast, superb dance numbers and costumes. It is being presented at The Festival Theatre where there are really no bad seats. Highly recommend it.

We attended "Guys and Dolls" at the Festival Theatre on Saturday April 15th at 2pm. With our first visit under our belts, we are now a bit wiser as far as navigating the online booking system, location and parking, and the physical layout of the theatre for future seat selection. The online booking system is a bit tricky for first... More

Our restaurant experience was also quite enjoyable. The other day I purchased this years tickets "online". As soon as I finished paying, I realized that I had inadvertently selected an... More

When you studied Shakespeare in high school, your teachers tried to explain what a real Shakespearean theatre was all about.... well, this is it....close to the audience... lots of clever ways to move characters onand off the stage... simple creative sets... but the best is the sound! These HUGELY talented actors can be heard in every corner of the theatre.... More
