Every year in western Ontario, April is the month that gets theatre lovers excited as The Stratford Festival gets set to begin an other run. In 2014, just like any other year, the line up of shows is enough to draw people from all across the country and beyond.
A Classic Festival
The 2014 version of the Stratford Festival promises to be filled with drama and passion, featuring 12 world-class productions. The 2014 line up includes “King Lear”, two versions of “A Mid-summer Night’s Dream”, “Hay Fever”, “Crazy for You”, “Alice Through the Looking Glass”, “The Beaux’ Stratagem”, “Man of La Mancha”, “Christina, The Girl King”, “Mother Courage”, “King John” and “Antony and Cleopatra”.
Between the timeless Shakespeare plays and exciting musicals, there really is something for every type of theatre lover. Once you check the calendar and get tickets for your preferred show, make sure you reserve a room while there are still rooms to reserve.
A Classic Place to Stay
If you’re looking for accommodation in the Stratford, St. Mary’s Ontario area, the classic Stratford festival hotel the Westover Inn, is the ideal place to stay. The Inn was built in 1867 and sits right on the Thames River, not far from Stratford. The Inn sits on 19 acres of land and with 22 guest rooms, the option to stay here during the Stratford Festival probably won’t last for very long.
You won’t find any massive waterslides or state of the art technology, but for a rich sense of history that blends right in with the theme of the Stratford Festival, the vintage hotel accommodation at the Westover Inn just makes sense. The meals are also something special, as the Inn has an award-winning dining room that features a lot of local and regional cuisine. A fully-stocked wine cellar and homemade ice cream or sorbet makes the meal complete.
If you’re thinking of making the trip to Stratford to take in one (or more) of these exceptional performances, take that extra step and give us a call to make the experience complete!
