Stratford Shakespeare Festival Weekend

Treat yourself to a weekend getaway with other theatre lovers, or combine our Stratford trip with Toronto Pursuits for a full week of culture and conversation. Either way, take in world-class theatre at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, home to North America’s largest classical repertory theatre. After the curtain falls, share meals and conversation with the group and enjoy the many charms of downtown Stratford with our longtime hosts Pat and Gary Schoepfel.

Our 2020 trip will be just in time for the opening of the Tom Patterson Theatre Centre, the Festival’s new flagship venue and one of the most significant investments in Canadian theatre in decades. We plan to take full advantage of the expanded programming that will be on offer at the new centre.

The 2020 playbill has just been announced, and includes the two plays that launched the Stratford Festival in 1953—Richard III and All’s Well That Ends Well. Also on the playbill are Hamlet, The Miser, Three Tall Women, The Rez Sisters, Wolf Hall, a major new production of Chicago and a new Canadian musical Here’s What It Takes.
