Located in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, Stratford Festival is North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company. Each season, they present a dozen or more productions in four distinctive venues. Productions range from the classics to contemporary dramas and musicals, with special emphasis on the plays of Shakespeare. In this Janette’s TV & Podcast episode, Janette takes you on a special behind-the-scenes tour of the Stratford Festival Warehouse where they design, create, and hold the costumes & props for all productions. Meet Publicity Director, Ann Swerdfager, Head of Wardrobe, Michelle Barnier, and Head of Props, Dona Hrabluk. Planning starts months in advance with no detail overlooked. Pieces are created from the finest fabrics & finishing’s and are also leased by Hollywood’s Film & TV Industry, Broadway, advertising agencies, commercials, and local theatre companies.

COVID has brought many changes to the Festival. For the 2021 Summer Season, the Festival is transforming into an outdoor festival offering six plays and five cabarets reflecting on the theme of Metamorphosis, with performances held under beautiful canopies that will hark back to the Festival’s founding under a tent back in 1953.This includes two Shakespeares, Romeo and Juliet – called simply R + J for this production – and A Midsummer Night’s Dream; two plays from the 2020 playbill, Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women and Tomson Highway’s The Rez Sisters; and two new plays, one about race and royalty, Serving Elizabeth by Marcia Johnson; and one, a musical, about the playwright to whom the Festival is dedicated, I Am William, with text by Rébecca Déraspe, and music by Chloé Lacasse and Benoit Landry.
