Stratford Festival runs from April 17 – November 4, 2018 in Stratford, Ontario (Shakespeare country) each year and is the largest classical repertory theatre in North America.
If you don’t have a car – no problem! The Stratford Festival offers a coach from Toronto to the Theatres in Stratford for only $29.
The season features a dozen plays, with something for everyone. Highlights include
- Shakespeare’s The Tempest
- Julius Caesar
If the social media buzz is any indication, fans will be lining up for tickets to The Rocky Horror Show.
For families and lovers of musical theatre, there’s The Music Man.
There’s plenty more for families, including
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors
Not to be missed are the modern classics
- Long Day’s Journey Into Night
- An Ideal Husband
- Napoli Milionaria!
Two new Festival commissions will have their world premières:
- Brontë: The World Without
- Paradise Lost
Tip: In order to really enjoy travelling to Stratford, consider spending a weekend there. It’s near St Jacobs country (Menonite) which includes Elmira and nearby Elora (Gorge/Falls).
Also, plan ahead. Try and confirm reservations with B&B’s months in advance as all the popular ones book up quite quickly – even a year in advance!
