Shaw Festival

In the heart of Niagara On The Lake is the Shaw Festival, a world renowned theatrical company recreating the works of George Bernard Shaw and now others.

The company works in three historical theatres located in the old town of Niagara On The Lake – the Festival Theatre, the Court House Theatre, and the Royal George Theatre.

The Shaw Festival is an art theatre as opposed to a commercial theatre, a non-profit organization producing 10 to 12 plays each season.
