Shakespearean Theater Stratford Ontario Canada

  • The Festival was founded as the Stratford Shakespearean Festival of Canada, due mainly to Tom Patterson, a Stratford-native journalist who wanted to revitalize his town’s economy by creating atheatre festival dedicated to the works of William Shakespeare, as the town shares the name of Shakespeare’s birthplace
  • In 1951, he approached Mayor Simpson about the possibility of erecting a theatre where actors could perform Shakespearean greats and the townspeople could spend their time – and money – gaining an appreciation for the arts. Luckily, the Mayor recognized the economic and cultural potential of Patterson’s idea and a committee of prominent Stratford citizens came together to push the idea forward.
  • The structure, which opened its doors in 1953, was originally a concrete amphitheatre with a tent roof. This design lasted for the theatre’s first four seasons, and in 1956, the tent came down and the building of a permanent structure began. Originally designed to resemble both a classic Greek amphitheatre and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the construction of the Festival Theatre required the incredible dedication and hard work of Gaffney Construction and 150 workers
