The Festival Theatre

The Festival Theatre at The Shaw Festival, the only modern and purpose-built theater in use at the festival.

The Festival Theatre accommodates 856 patrons and serves as venue for the festival’s offerings expected to be most appealing at the box office.

It was at the Festival Theatre that we saw “Present Laughter”, “Ragtime” and “His Girl Friday”.

By American standards, the Festival Theatre is not large. It is slightly smaller than the Eisenhower Theater at the Kennedy Center, the best-scaled and most successful modern theater built for the presentation of legitimate plays I have ever visited.
