3 Days

Stratford Festival is North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company with a return outstanding line up for 2022. Presenting classics, contemporary dramas and musicals, they put special emphasis on the plays of Shakespeare. Roll back in time, and the year was 1950.The railway had just pulled out of Stratford. In a bid to breathe new life into the community that sits on the idyllic Avon River, journalist Tom Patterson tabled the idea of a Shakespearean theatre. How fitting that in the spring of 2020, the brand-new Tom Patterson Theatre was ready to open. This year is the big un-veiling and two of our included shows are at the Tom Patterson Theatre.

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCES

CHICAGO – SIN, DANCE AND ALL THAT JAZZ (INCLUDED)
Aspiring chorus girl Roxie Hart and vaudeville star Velma Kelly, two murderesses as sexy as they are cynical, compete for the skills of shady lawyer Billy Flynn and the media celebrity he has promised them both. With its killer score and knock-’em-dead dance numbers, this deliciously lurid tale of murder, greed, adultery                      – and all that jazz – packs some serious heat.
William Shakespeare’s RICHARD 111 (INCLUDED)
As charismatic as he is cunning, as strangely seductive as he is utterly ruthless, Richard, Duke of Gloucester, is the very embodiment of lethal ambition as he maneuvers and murders his way to the throne of England, sardonically reveling in his own villainy every step of the way. But once he has reached the top, the only way left to go is down – and in Richard’s growing roster of vengeful enemies, none are more menacing than the ghosts of his past.
HIS SUCCESSION PLAN WILL SLAY YOU
ALL’S WELL THAT ENDS WELL (INCLUDED)
Having worked a seemingly miraculous cure on the deathly ill King of France, Helen, the orphaned daughter of a celebrated physician, claims as her reward the hand of Bertram, the young lord she adores. She already has the blessing of his mother, the Countess of Rossillion, but Bertram himself resents being forced into an arranged marriage. It looks like Helen needs another miracle to win his heart – till Bertram’s own roving eye enables an audacious remedy.
COLD SHOULDER? THERE’S A CURE FOR THAT
