Shaw Festival

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 each other.

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, books, music, theater shirts and other cool stuff at Bernard's, the Shaw festival Shop.
