For me the Festival is the only reason to visit Stratford. The quality of the work is excellent, offers many choices other than Shakespeare, and the plays are almost always unusual and interesting.

A must when visiting Stratford is to do the Theatre tour in the AM. Then you understand better the history and are ready to see a show. The volunteers are amazing!!

Yes. Nearly any musical and certainly those done by Stratford Festival are appropriate. Guys and Dolls is a great one for them to see - what a spectacle!
