Inspired by the works of the legendary Bernard Shaw, the Shaw Festival is
a prestigious theatre company that produces Shaw era and contemporary plays
that reveal the playwright’s provocative celebration of society and the human
spirit. Located in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Shaw
Festival presents exciting plays of Bernard Shaw and Shavian playwrights in
four distinctive theatres, including the Festival Theatre – The Shaw’s flagship
theatre where drama fans can enjoy large-scale productions. Step out to the
patio or stroll through the beautiful gardens on a warm night.
You can also see Shaw Festival performances at the historic
Court House Theatre, a national historic site and where The Shaw first began
performing, the Royal George Theatre, fashioned after an Edwardian opera house,
and the Studio Theatre, the intimate 175-seat home of the contemporary Shavians.
The best part is that all these amazing theatres are within walking distance of
Toronto’s world-famous theater
destination, the Shaw Festival delivers powerful stage shows in a beautiful
countryside setting. Upcoming plays include Our Betters, Guys and Dolls, Major
Barbara, Lady Windermere’s Fan and Faith Healer. You can shop for scripts,
