Stratford Shakespeare Festival Weekend

Please note: Our sold-out excursion has been postponed to July 2021. We have not yet officially opened registration for the 2021 trip as we await news on what the Stratford Festival plans to do. The Festival has made many plays available for online streaming; see their Stratford@Home site.

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 was meant 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 still hope very much to take full advantage of the expanded programming that will be on offer at the new centre and will keep you updated as we get more information about the 2021 season.
