Individual Giving

"The year was 1979, and I was a teenager, making my first visit to the Stratford Festival. I went to a matinee performance of Love’s Labour’s Lost…and that performance literally changed my life"

Antoni Cimolino
Artistic Director


The Festival has always had a special relationship with young people. Attending a performance with parents or on a school trip is often the first chance children and teenagers have to experience the power of live theatre – and through it, to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their fellow human beings.

Please help us connect young people with live theatre by making a donation now.Your gift will help us not only to present productions that engage young people but also to continue offering them the wide range of activities that illuminate those productions’ themes.

By inspiring young people to share your love of live theatre, you will help ensure its future – for those youngsters of today will be not only our next generation of patrons but also tomorrow’s creative artists.
