“Stratford is more than theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Wonderful dining opportunities, walking the park, shopping the quaint downtown. And then the theatres. Stratford can be a day trip or several days. Shakespear is a small village to the east of Stratford and well worth stopping to see the 6-7 antique shops and have tea on the way into stratford.

“always great productions”

the classical renditions of the Shakespeare plays are the best in north America. We always enjoy the variety including the ancient Greek tragedies

“Amazing !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We had another great time at the Festival. We saw HENRY V and the Christopher Plummer: WORD FOR WORD shows. Always they are GREAT and we were not disappointed. If you love theatre you really need to go- I have seen plays on Broadway which aren't half as good as what they do here in Stratford.

“All shows were fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We saw Pirates of Penzance! Much ado about Nothing, and 42nd Street. All were high energy, entertaining and funny! Definitely worth seeing!

“Festival Theatre -- Always a treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

My son and I attend at least one show per year at the Festival theatre. The experience can't be beat...come early and relax by the Avon river, even bring a picnic to enjoy. The theatre itself is such a nice place to watch a show, whether it's Shakespeare or something more modern.
