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.

Go! Just a lovely experience and great theatre. Please for the love of all good things, spend some time in Stratford. Walk the shops, eat chocolate, dine, relax in the Shakespearean Gardens, meander along the river... take it all in. Totally worth it.

Beautifully done overall! The little girl who played Scoutt was especially amazing and the dad who played Adicus also amazing! The narrator wasn’t the best. Overall good seats!

Festival still going strong after decades, with yet another venue to open in 2019 or so. Yes, you can see a performance (or more) each day, with amazing casts, costumes, music, staging. Find new stars: “Will & Grace”s Erin McCormack was here for years, so...More

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!
