Two open-sided canopies, one at the Tom Patterson Theatre and one at the Festival Theatre, will allow us to once again welcome you back to live theatre at the Stratford Festival. 

These shelters will provide shaded areas to protect from rain and direct sunlight. The realities of COVID-19 prohibit us from moving air with fans, but we can enjoy nature’s warm summer breezes. Bring a light jacket or sweater for those cooler evenings.

Our seating will be made of an easily sanitized material to assist with our safety protocols. Our performances will run about 90 minutes without an interval. You are invited to bring a seat cushion for your comfort.
