1 musical, 2 Shakespeare, 2 dramas. Incredible talent. Grandparents, mom, and 15 year old were all very entertained. Also toll a back stage tour and warehouse tour. Made one appreciate the incredible professionalism involved.

We've been to many musicals in the last couple few years. This one definitely stood out. Great ensemble lead by Darren Herbert (Harold Hill). The music, the dancing, the humor. Just amazing. Would go see it again in a heart beat.

Outstandingly infectious! The cast put their hearts into every second of the performance. Just when I thought I was impressed something even more impressive happened on stage. This was, by far, the best production I've seen at Stratford Festival.

To me this was an unfamiliar play- one of Shakespeare’s last plays. Came with a group from Bowling Green State University- WBGU- TV. The staging was masterful- updating the setting - part was filmed and projected - part was live on stage- just amazing. Would...More

This was an excellent play. Cast was wonderful. Had such a good time. 2pm was ideal show time. Enough time to stop for lunch and still plenty of time to get somewhere for dinner.

Really a very high quality set of performances. Entertaining, excellent acting, costumes and sets. A level of excellence which makes the ticket prices seem well worth it. We particularly enjoyed the Music Man.

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!
