This season, Stratford Festival brings Shakespeare’s most renowned love-story to the stage in an unforgettable ensemble. Romeo & Juliet has received four-star accolades from critics and theatre-lovers alike, perfectly blending all the elements of a great performance – comedy, drama, and the angst of forbidden love.

This classic tale of star-crossed lovers caught in a long-standing feud between their families, the Montagues and Capulets, will have you enthralled. Through scheming and feuding, this two-and-a-half-hour performance will have you on the edge of your seat, awaiting the climax of a seemingly tragedy-doomed fate.

Sara Farb (Juliet) and Antoine Yared (Romeo), both in their fifth season with Stratford Festival, capture the impetuosity of childhood and passion of youth perfectly. Supported by an exceptional cast, they deliver a performance deemed “Must see-theatre” by Post Media, “Riveting” by the Capital Critics Circle, and “A rare treat” full of “passions both vivid and violent” – Toronto Star.

Running May 3 – Oct. 21, 2017 at the Festival Theatre, Romeo & Juliet is just a short walk from the Parlour Inn. We have a selection of summer getaway packages to compliment your theatre experience, and our onsite steakhouse makes it easy to enjoy a delicious dinner, conveniently timed around your theatre plans.
