The Festival Theatre began in 1953 as a tent standing over a wooden thrust stage which was surrounded on three sides by the audience. Such a stage had not been seen by theatre-goers for centuries. Designed by Tanya Moiseiwitsch to specifications proposed by Tyrone Guthrie, this stage has subsequently influenced the design of over a dozen other theatre buildings throughout the world.
The Studio Theatre is a 200-seat theatre located in the Shaw Festival’s Production Centre (same location as the Festival Theatre). To access the theatre, use the Production Centre entrance. An outdoor patio overlooks beautiful gardens and grounds which are ideal for a stroll.
