At the St.Lawrence Shakespeare Festival, we received terrific financial backing during the pandemic that enabled us to survive and come back with our 20th season in 2022.  We continue to be incredibly grateful for the considerable support we receive annually from the community and our patrons.  That support has helped make us one of Ontario's most treasured outdoor theatre festivals. 

Our mission aims for the highest possible standards of artistic excellence.  Every year we produce professional productions in the magnificent natural surroundings of the Kinsmen Amphitheatre whilst encouraging the greatest possible level of community involvement.  With your donation to the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival, you support the fantastic professional shows that audiences enjoy each summer. with the magnificent background of the mighty St. Lawrence River.  You help sustain the Festival for the future years, promoting Canadian theatre artists and an essential classical theatre training ground for our next generation.
