The Shaw Festival. One of
the largest repertory companies in North America, the Shaw Festival is
the only theater in the world that specializes in plays written by Bernard
Shaw and his contemporaries (1856-1950) plays about the beginning
of the modern world.
Located in the historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario,
the Shaw Festival is at the northern end of the scenic Niagara Parkway.
Niagara-on-the-Lake is a beautiful town full of lush parks and gardens,
historic sites, award-winning wineries, and some of Canadas finest
Victorian architecture. Niagara-on-the-Lake recently won the Prettiest
Town in Canada award and placed second for Prettiest Town
in the World.
The Stratford Festival. Shakespeares
plays are and always will be the cornerstone of the Stratford Festival
of Canada. The Festival adventure began in 1953, in a tent; an affirmation
of hope when a world war was still a recent memory. For 50 years, the
Stratford Festival has celebrated the enduring human impulse to create
art, and what that impulse represents: the continuing triumph of life
The excitement of the Stratford Festival is never limited
to the productions on stage, with concerts, lectures, tours, free-for-all
discussions, and appearances by celebrated writers, all part of the Festival
