We saw “Ideal Husband”. The first act was very slow and a bit boring but the second act was terrific and we were glad we stayed.

My husband and I visited the Stratford festival and cannot emphasize enough how great the experience was. We saw Music Man, Rocky Horror Show, Coriolanus and The Tempest. I am still reliving details in my mind with pleasure!

Two plays--To Kill a Mockingbird and The Tempest--both presented new approaches on established classics. Plus you cannot beat Canadian hospitality. Their default...More

Stratford has hosted the Shakespeare Festival for over 65 years. We were there on Opening Night 2018 and were entertained by the bagpipers outside before show time. Quaint town, great theater.

With so many shows to see I found the best website to help decide which to see. It's called Stratford festival Reviews. I has all the shows and some excellent articles on the actors and insider's tips on the best restaurants.

Without a doubt, Stratford Festival is a National treasure. I love going! My first experience was Romeo and Juliet and I was a teenager. I was shocked by the behaviour of some of my fellow students but the actors never missed a line or cue.....Such...More

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!
