Description


THE ORGANIZATION

The Stratford Festival is North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company. Each season, we present more than a dozen productions in four distinctive venues (one of which is currently being rebuilt).

We produce acclaimed productions of Shakespeare’s plays, other works from the classical repertoire, and contemporary dramas and musicals, while actively fostering and supporting the development of Canadian theatre.

Embracing our 66-year heritage of tradition and innovation, we seek to bring theatre alive for increasingly diverse audiences, pursue new artistic avenues, and expand the scope and reach of our work beyond the stage itself. Thus we also present the Stratford Festival Forum, conduct our artistic R&D program, the Laboratory, and are midway through a ten-year project – unique in North America – to film all of Shakespeare’s plays.

With an annual budget of $61 million, the Festival earns 95% of its revenue through ticket sales as well as ancillary and fundraising activities, making it one of the most self-sufficient cultural organizations on the continent.

We have built an $80-million endowment fund to support our operating activities, including training, education outreach, play development and capital projects.

Our new $70-million Tom Patterson Theatre Centre will open in time for our 2020 season. This 600-seat state-of-the-art facility will both affirm and vastly enhance the Festival’s position as a world leader in live theatre.

By attracting the finest talent from Canada and the world, and by providing the conditions and training that enable artists to achieve their most courageous work, we immerse our audiences in a theatregoing experience that is innovative, entertaining, and unsurpassed anywhere in the world: one that is deeply relevant to, and reflective of, their lives and communities.
