The Stratford Shakespeare Festival takes place every year in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. It is an annual festival that showcases many of Shakespeare’s works, but is also known for presenting non-Shakespearian tragedies as well as modern plays. In recent years, professors of Wittenberg University’s English and Theatre Departments have taken student groups to the festival for a weekend early in the Fall Semester. The trip offers Broadway-quality theatre at a very affordable price, and room and board are included in the price of the trip. Students on the 2014 trip will have the opportunity to see such plays as A Midsummer Night's Dream, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Crazy for You, The Beaux' Strategem and King John.
