The Stratford Festival takes place every year in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. It is an annual live theatre festival that showcases many of Shakespeare’s works, 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 Stratford 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, Mother Courage, Crazy for You, Hay Fever, The Beaux' Strategem and King John.
