Duty of Care
During your visit to the theatre, your well-being is top of mind. To that effect the Shaw Festival is committed to the following health and safety measures:

The next play to hit the stage at the Shaw Festival is Native Earth’s This Is How We Got Here, on stage February 9-19 at the Jackie Maxwell Studio Theatre. At this time the play is scheduled to play at 50% capacity. If and when that changes, we will update accordingly.



The Shaw Festival has been awarded a Safe travels stamp, which is recognized globally for adopting proper, standardized health and hygiene protocols.

We require – for the safety of other patrons and our artists – that patrons who are unwell stay home and contact the Box Office to reschedule their visit to The Shaw. Exchange fees will be waived for all cases of illness. Please rest assured that the Shaw Festival also has the safety and well-being of its staff and artists at heart and has protocols in place to ensure this. All of our Retail, Front of House, Box Office and Food & Beverage staff will be wearing masks or face shields, as required by the local public health authority.

Kindly ensure we have a valid email address for you on file so that we may communicate with you quickly and efficiently. This includes our pre-show email sent to you prior to your visit which may contain additional useful and important information.
