The 2019 Shaw Festival season commences April 4, 2019 with a World Premiere Stage adaptation of C.S. Lewis’s The Horse and His Boy, a plunge into Narnia, which will delight young audiences.   One of thirteen  plays in a fun filled season which runs from April 4 – December 22,  the Festival operates in three theatres located in lovely Niagara on the Lake, and is unique as the only one in the world that specializes exclusively in plays by George Bernard Shaw and his Contemporaries.

 Artistic Director, Tim Carroll,  has selected a diverse mix of plays,  for the 58th season,  from Lerner and Loewe’s Brigadoon at the Festival Theatre, Getting Married, one of Shaw’s wittiest offerings, at the Royal George Theatre to the intensely dramatic The Glass Menagerie, American Tennessee William’s enduring Masterpiece at the Jackie Maxwell Studio Theatre. The season will close with Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol, adapted by Tim Carroll. Popular favourites and lesser known new plays will  round out the season and returning for a third year, the popular secret theatre, has unexpected moments of theatre popping up in the strangest places.
