The Shaw Festival … the perfect intermission from life! Nestled in the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake, just a short lovely drive down the beautiful Niagara Parkway from Niagara Falls, The Shaw is one of North America’s finest cultural attractions. Each year, from April to October, The Shaw offers an eclectic array of award-winning musicals, family-friendly offerings, quirky comedies, bold dramas, sweeping classics and thrilling whodunits. Plus, A Christmas Carol on stage in November and December.
The Shaw Festival’s 2018 Season features 14 productions presented in the Festival’s three theatres. Highlights includes: The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis – a magical, spectacular journey into Narnia (plus a pre-show workshop with an actor for the whole family!), a glamourous production of the musical Grand Hotel; The Hound of the Baskervilles – a Sherlock Holmes mystery; and Mythos: A Trilogy – Gods. Heroes. Men. written by and starring the legendary Stephen Fry.
There’s also so much beyond the stage … great workshops, seminars and backstage tours.
My dad and I just went to the performance on Saturday evening. What a beautiful theartre and grounds. The gardens are gorgeous, the theatre is so welcoming, the lobby is roomy, there was a gift...
Theatre was lovely, comfortable, casual dress. Brigadoon was outstanding. Will be coming again for sure.
Very impressive theatre. Building is quite new and the seats are comfortable. The sets were extremely well done.
