If you are interested in theatre, both the mechanics of how staging is done, and in discussing the meaning of plays presented this program is dynamite!

I strongly suggest this program for anyone. I think even those who enjoy theatre were greatly impressed with what we were able to see and learn about The Shaw Theatre program.

This was a great program, as we not only saw three very different plays at the Shaw Festival, but also attended lectures, interactive sessions and some behind the scenes tours, and met with cast members and others involved with the productions. All aspects of the program had been very well organized.

Get the inside scoop on theatre at the Shaw Festival. Find out from Shaw actors and behind-the-scenes people what it takes to put on a play. Niagara-on-the-Lake is a beautiful town full of flowers. A hotel in Niagara Falls allows for exploration of the Falls and the city. In-other-words, a great location.

If you like the theater, you will love this trip. Saw three outstanding plays and backstage experience was informative and just plain fun. The little town of Niagara on the Falls is charming, lots of little shops. Then to see Niagara Falls, hear the thunder and feel the mist - great experience.

If you love theater, this program is for you. There are lots of "behind the scenes" experiences plus excellent theater. You experience beautiful Niagara Falls and see excellent theater all in one trip.

If you love theater, this is the place to go. The theater experience is wonderful, educational, interesting, and the people in charge were very efficient and pleasant and accommodating. Also, Niagara-on-the-Lake is beautiful. Go!
