We are very pleased to announce our 20th annual Stratford Festival Tour
Holy Moly! What a response! We have officially sold out our first bus, and are now taking registrations for a second bus. Please note that we need a minimum number of registrations in order to be able to offer a second bus. Do please register and we will keep you posted.
For twenty years we have been hosting group tours to this amazing Canadian treasure. To celebrate this special occasion we have been able to organize this year’s trip to include the Festival Opening! The Stratford Festival will roll out the red carpet on our first evening for its 67th season, with the gala opening of Shakespeare’s Othello, and we’ll be there alongside the press to mingle with the Stratford stars and other VIPs.
We will also be attending the opening of Billy Elliot, and taking in three other amazing productions as well.
Come be a part of this iconic Canadian celebration!
May 27 – 29, 2019
Three days of incredible theatre, including five world-class productions, luxury coach transportation from Perth to Stratford, two nights accommodation in a beautiful hotel (with indoor swimming pool!), meeting and greeting the actors – the experience of a lifetime!
Don’t miss what everyone’s been raving about – join us this year for a life changing experience, and support this incredible icon of Canadian performing arts.
Please register early to save a space and avoid disappointment.
All ages are welcome, from 5 to 105!
We particularly encourage students to join us. A trip fee discount is offered as an incentive, and a certain number of trip spaces will be reserved for students to experience this incredible opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the world’s leading actors and theatre professionals.
(Please note that some productions may have some mature language or subject matter – check with Heidi if you are concerned. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult. But our 10 year-old daughter is coming for the sixth year in a row – she already can’t wait!)

~ special VIP reception after Othello as part of the Stratford Opening festivities
~ gourmet buffet dinner at the Festival Inn prior to Opening Night

~ Tickets to five Stratford productions, with excellent seats:
Billy Elliot The Musical
(Elton John’s heartfelt musical about the triumph of a young boy’s dreams against all odds. Directed and choreographed by Donna Feore)
(One of Shakespeare’s greatest and best known tragedies. The Festival’s 2019 flagship production with Michael Blake as Othello – last year’s amazing Caliban!)
The Neverending Story
( Based on the classic novel by Michael Ende and iconic 1984 film, this promises to be the most visually stunning show of the season. Directed by Jillian Keiley – of Alice Through the Looking Glass and Narnia fame.)
Merry Wives of Windsor
(Set in the 1950s, in a town not unlike Stratford, this production brings Shakespeare’s rollicking comedy close to home. Directed by Antoni Cimolino and starring Lucy Peacock and Geraint Wyn Davies, with Michael Blake and Graham Abbey)
(World premiere! Following The Last Wife and The Virgin Trial, this fascinating exploration of women, power and the
nature of leadership concludes Kate Hennig’s brilliant Queenmaker Trilogy)
Little Shop of Horrors
(Awesome special effects, a tender love story and a fabulous sixties-style
score all combine to make this deliciously campy sci-fi spoof a “monster” hit. Directed and choreographed by Donna Feore.)
[You will have a choice between The Neverending Story and Mother’s Daughter]

Hear what people are saying about past trips:
“I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful Stratford trip. My poor friends who didn’t get to go now have to listen to me exude joy and euphoria about the amazing time I had. Everything you planned and included in this adventure worked together to make the whole trip absolutely fabulous.”
“The workshop, the Q&A sessions, the costume warehouse visit all enhanced the experience of the performances – as well as having a whole busload of people to share the experience with. I sure do want to go next year!”
“It was expertly planned with consideration for everyone’s personal needs and preferences.”
“There were no details lacking and I feel privileged to have this very special opportunity. Thanks so much Heidi!”
A really great experience – the price is unbeatable – but the best part is going to theatre with a group of theatre junkies! Please know that I appreciate all
the work you put into this trip – it’s a terrific experience. Wouldn’t miss it for the world!
