“Let Good Theater Transport you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Always good plays to choose from. A delightful town small enough to enjoy the shops, restaurants and strolls along the Avon River.

“A treasure in Southern Ontario”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

The Stratford Shakespeare Festival is something we look forward to each season from spring until Fall. The performances include not only Shakespeare but musicals and plays that appeal to all ages, with outstanding and well known artists There s the amazing large Festival Theatre plus three others. It's in the most beautiful small city of Stratford with many great restaurants and shopping. It is on a river with an endless park and paths to walk.
Wonderful, just wonderful

“Too expensive.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

I love the plays here, don't get me wrong. But ever since Justin Bieber became famous Stratford has monopolized on that. It's not the same as it once was. The ticket prices are RIDICULOUS. I'd take a pass on this one.

Stratford_Festival, Manager at Stratford Festival, responded to this review, 15 February 2012
Thank you for your feedback, we value the opinions of all of our patrons. It is our goal to ensure that our productions are available to everyone who wants to see them. To make sure that everyone is able to attend we have scheduled discount programs such as TiXX with $29 tickets for Festival theatre balcony, Family Experience tickets for kids at $36, Rush tickets on most performances (up to 50% off), reduced C-zone seats at $49 and our PlayOn program which offers people 16-29 $25 tickets. In addition we offer many specials throughout the season on Facebook, Twitter and online savings through our website. We have made a concerted effort to maintain ticket prices, and since 2009 the price of a ticket has remained the same or decreased. Lastly, when you purchase during our pre-season booking period prices are reduced by as much as 25%. We’d love to welcome you back to our theatres again, if you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to call us directly at 1.800.567.1600.
