Stratford Theatre Getaway

Tuesday, September 24 - Wednesday, September 25

You must have a current passport with the recommended 6 months from travel date


September in Stratford is beautiful. The hustle and bustle of the summer has dissipated. We want you to enjoy the beauty of the theatre and calm air in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. We will dine in this lovely little town and see some of the best productions that Stratford has to offer.


Little Shop of Horrors at the Avon Theatre: Skid Row florist’s clerk Seymour Krelborn is too shy to declare his love for his co-worker Audrey – until a mysterious exotic plant brings him unexpected fame and fortune. There’s only one problem: the plant has ambitions of its own, and it thrives on only one food – human blood.


Billy Elliot the Musical at the Festival Theatre: Dreams don’t come easy in the hardscrabble mining town, riven by a bitter national strike, where eleven-year-old Billy lives with his bereaved family. But Billy’s discovery of his talent for dance awakens in him a passion that will transform his life and win the hearts of his whole community.


The Merry Wives of Windsor at the Festival Theatre: Pursuing two respectable married women at the same time, a would-be seducer fails to anticipate that his targets will, quite literally, compare notes. Nor has he reckoned on the mischievous spirit in which the wives will use their wits and wiles to teach him the error of his ways.


The Arden Park Hotel will be where you will rest your weary heads and have a lovely breakfast at your leisure in morning.
