Love live theatre and love to travel? Then you would probably agree that the ideal vacation involves traveling to a destination where there's an opportunity to take in a play or two (or more). Each year, tens of thousands of North Americans head out of town for the express purpose of attending live theatre.
In the Canadian province of Ontario, there are two communities known around the world for their seasonal professional theatre companies - Stratford and Niagara-on-the-Lake. In 2018, the Stratford Festival alone welcomed over 500,000 visitors and the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake had over 250,000 - that's a lot of theatre-goers! Visiting either of these destinations during festival season is a great experience for anyone including families that have children old enough to attend the theatre.
