Announcing The Shaw's 2020 Season - Shaw Festival Theatre

2020 Season
Members order first! Become a Friend of The Shaw
Not one, but two magnificent Sondheim musicals! An epic story out of India. The continuing battle for Narnia. A devil of a rebel straight out of the American Revolution. A dog more Casanova than canine. An Irish classic, an American classic and a forgotten classic. Plus, the return of Sherlock Holmes!
