All the World’s a Stage at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival Contest
The arts are important. As parents, we know this and what better way to encourage your kids to love art and theatre than to expose them to it?
This season the Stratford Shakespeare Festival has two incredible shows on their playbill for families.
You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown is an entertaining musical about a typical day in the life of favourite good guy, Charlie Brown. From trying to get his kite to fly to trying to find the nerve to talk to that cute little redhead girl, Charlie Brown and his friends all face challenges in their pursuit of that fleeting thing called happiness.
The Pirates of Penzance is the classic Gilbert & Sullivan musical that follows the adventures of Frederic, the apprentice to a crew of notoriously soft-hearted pirates, as he falls in love with Mabel, one of the many wards of Major-General Stanley.
We have 2 Family 4 Packs of tickets to see You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown on Sunday, August 5 at 8 PM, valued at $340 each pack and 1 Family 4 Pack of tickets to see The Pirates of Penzance on Thursday, August 30 at 2 PM, valued at $340. Enter now for your chance to win.
