The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe was the final one I saw and I bought the tickets as a surprise for a friend for her birthday. She absolutely loved the performance, and even though we were seated quite high up on the balcony, we were still... More

In November, I went to see the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, a classic book written by:CS Lewis,at Avon Theatre which is in Stratford. If you have never been, the theatre is old on the outside but is carpeted on the inside. Although it's a nice theatre., It was a very good and authentic performance to watch. The costumes... More

Even before it became a venue for the Stratford Festival of live theatre, the Avon was host to the Stratford Film Festival (which went on to become the TIFF). Now it provides one of the stages where people of all ages can enjoy some of the very best theatrical performances offered in North America. We attend several plays each year,... More

A magical show in this lovely theatre. While some of the seating can be quite far from the stage, view is unobstructed, seat comfortable and we never miss the store.
