About the Shaw Festival
Inspired by the spirit of Bernard Shaw, the Shaw Festival is one of North America’s finest repertory theatres. Nestled in the heart of the historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, located on the banks of Lake Ontario, The Shaw is twenty minutes away from Niagara Falls, and less than a two-hour drive to Toronto, in Canada.
The Shaw Festival is a place where people who are curious about the world gather to share the unique experience of live theatre and to create a deeper human connection with the artists, the beauty and abundance of Niagara and with each other.
