In preparation for your trip:

  • Discuss the important role of the audience with students including giving their attention to the actors on stage, joining in the imaginative journey they are offering and allowing fellow audience members to do the same without distraction. Actors feed off the audience's energy; share laughter, tears and applause to let them know their performance is being thoroughly enjoyed!

Arriving at the theatre:

  • Please leave all backpacks at school or on your bus. If this is not possible, students may be asked to check their bags.
  • Please arrive 30 minutes before the start of the performance. This will allow time to distribute tickets, use the washroom or take a walk through the gift shop.
  • If you are picking up your tickets on the day of the performance, please arrive at the theatre at least 45 minutes before the performance begins. Tickets will be held at their respective theatres two hours before the show.
  • Distribute the performance tickets at an alternate location away from the theatre entrance.
  • Teachers and chaperones should assign one chaperone seat for every 15 students.
  • Stratford Festival patrons are responsible for complying with all COVID regulations regarding entry. For the safety of our patrons and staff, we strongly recommend that masks be worn in our venues.

  • We encourage the use of hand sanitizer and to physical distance where possible.
  • Visit the restroom before the show begins or at intermission.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available in all of our theatre lobbies.

During the performance:

  • It is expected that teachers and supervisors sit with their students.
  • Please turn off all mobile devices once you're seated so that no one will be disturbed during the performance. You may choose to collect these devices from the students before entering the theatre.
  • If you arrive late for a performance, or leave the auditorium, our ushers will make every effort to seat you during a suitable break.
  • Disruptive behavior (including loud talking) will not be tolerated during the performance and may result in patrons being asked to leave the theatre. A teacher/chaperone will be asked to sit with the student in the lobby.
