VIRTUAL YOUTH PROGRAMS

DISCOVER. IMAGINE. CREATE.

As we are unable to welcome you in person to participate in programming onsite in Stratford, we have developed a number of virtual programs for young people in Grades 7-8 and Grades 9-12. We hope, despite our distance, this programming will provide the opportunity for learning, play, joy and connection during this uncertain time.

No experience is necessary. All are welcome. Bursaries are available; priority will be given to IBPOC youth and those participating for the first time in Stratford Festival programming.
