In addition to all the dramatic performances, The Shaw Festival offers many additional experiences to go behind the scenes. “Get the deeper experience: fascinating discussions, readings with Shaw Ensemble members, backstage tours & more.”  (Shaw Festival website).  From multi day conferences diving into each play to classes, backstage tours, readings and concerts; there is something for everyone.  Check out the Shaw Festival website for dates and costs.

Some highlights:

Coffee Concerts – Sunday morning concerts with the Shaw Orchestra
Phantoms of the Shaw – Ghost Tour

You will want to stay a few days and take in all the shows.  Book your stay at one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s wonderful bed and breakfasts, inns or cottages at bookyourstay.ca.
