I try to make it to Stratford at least once every summer to watch the plays. Every time, I'm blown away by the quality of the shows and the theatres, the Festival theatre in particular. Every year, my favourites are the Shakespeare plays, but there are also many other playwrights' works performed, and every one I've watched has been delightful.... More

"A 5-6-7-8!? Out of curiosity and because of affordable tickets, went to see A Chorus Line at the Stratford Festival to see if it measured up. Well, it did and was pleasantly amazed by the proximity of our seats to the stage. All for $25 per person. The show's retelling of a chorus line audition for a fictional Seventies Broadway... More

We have been coming to the theater in Stratford for years and love the variety of performances and the lovely nature of Stratford. We also have brought the children to many of the performances. We just love it!

The festival is internationally known, and the actors are always to notch. Some plays make there way to Broadway from here, so you know it's quality. Plays for all types and ages, and Shakespeare is adapted and refreshed enough each year that it's always enjoyable! I've been coming here since I was a kid and I hope to be coming... More

Not impressed. Tickets were expensive but the quality was poor. After seeing Peter Pan a few years ago, I was excited for this. What a let down. Stratford can do better. The only reason I give it a 2 rating is because the kids enjoyed it.
