Big family?
A maximum of four Family Experience tickets can be ordered online with each adult ticket. If you need more than four Family Experience tickets per adult, please call our Box Office.

Your Family Adventure in Stratford
There are lots of great choices for families in 2014, including Alice Through the Looking-Glass, Crazy for You, and A Midsummer Night's Dream, among others. In addition to the plays, there are a variety of activities that are great for families:

Explore our Costume and Props Warehouse; one of the largest in North America, and full of incredible hand-stitched costumes and realistic props. Or catch a glimpse behind the scenes with a Festival Theatre Tour and learn how some of the magic is created on our stages.  

The Forum also offers activities for families, where you can join us to take part in fun pre-performance activities that get you ready to see the show. For more information and a schedule of events, click here.
