Welcome to the Stratford Festival blog! The Stratford Festival is a repertory theatre festival, permanently located in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. Our mission is to produce, to the highest standards possible, the best works of theatre in the classical and contemporary repertoire, with special emphasis on the works of William Shakespeare.
A national institution of international renown, the Festival is committed to maintaining and promoting the highest level of artistic excellence, to cultivating the widest possible audience and to providing theatre-related education and training for Canadian artists. In our creative exploration of the great works of the dramatic imagination, we aim to rediscover and reinvent those works for each new age, in order that they may continue to entertain, enlighten and inspire audiences of all ages and origins.
You can get involved by following any of our staff on twitter: follow our main Stratford Festival account, our Artistic Director Antoni Cimolino, our Executive Director Anita Gaffney or our Theatre Store.
