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.

Venue was lovely, staff were great. No big lineups, everything worked. But the play was just amazing! Actors were great and there is no bad seat in the house! Highly recommend seeing this play!

We very much enjoyed the production of Shakespeare in Love that we attended in the Avon Theatre. Aside from the production, the theatre is beautiful in its own right. The architecture, art, and decoration of the building is beautiful. The inside of the auditorium is a wonderful blend of historic and modern decor, and is small enough that even the... More

Recently we had the pleasure of seeing "A Little Night Music" at the Avon Theater. With seats second row in the balcony we could see everything perfectly. The seats were great although if you were a "larger" size person, it may not be too comfortable. ( We were also told that the first 5 - 6 rows of orchestra require... More

Not as large as the Festival Theatre this is a beautiful theatre inside. Seats are older like in older movie theatres and not too comfortable. View is good even from the balcony. The play was excellent - acting, costumes and sets.

Such a pity that Debbie Hansen's odd choice of scenery tended to distract from a delightful romp of the sexual entanglements of three mismatched couples. The acting, music and costumes were magical but we wondered why enormous factory chimneys dominated the background of the first act in what was supposed to be the elegant interior of a Swedish lawyer's home...
