April 23rd, 2016 marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death, and to celebrate his work, we have a big season planned.
Discover how you can be part of the Festival this year.
Whether you're a post-secondary student seeking meaningful summer employment, a budding thespian or a seasoned actor looking for a new challenge, or a theatre lover who enjoys supporting local artists, we offer many opportunities for everyone to participate.
One of the comforts that life offers us is that you can not sincerely help others without helping yourself.
